Director-Led Voyages

To celebrate a decade of excellent programs, Walking Tree Travel is inviting a select group of students join us on exclusive adventures led by Walking Tree Travel’s Directors and Founders.  Applications are open to all, but spots are limited. This year’s voyages take us into the wilds of Australia to conduct surveys on the Great Barrier Reef, duck-billed platypuses, and unique Koala populations.  Or, travel to the biodiverse heart of Botswana to volunteer with researchers studying lions, leopards, cheetahs, and participate in an environmental education-focused soccer camp for local students.  Programs will be led by a team including one of Walking Tree Travel’s Directors, who have decades of travel experience with students and have personally developed these unique opportunities for their travelers.

Featured Director

  • Morrison Mast Conservation Program Director

    College of William and Mary – B.S. Biology and Environmental Science & Policy

    Morrison is an obsessive and experienced traveler, having been to 50+ countries in pursuit of the life-changing experiences offered by the wild places of the world. Fluent in Portuguese, Spanish, and broken French, he is an avid wildlife photographer whose favorite subjects are beetles, spiders, and the oft overlooked microcosms they inhabit. Morrison is a percussionist at heart and has performed nationally and internationally with groups ranging in style from symphonic to experimental rock and traditional Turkish music. During his undergraduate years, Morrison conducted research in Brazil and Madagascar with conservation organizations that are actively working with communities to strike a sustainable balance between humans and the ecosystems that support them. Education is surely the most rewarding aspect of his work; Morrison constantly strives to inspire positive change by communicating his overwhelming awe of the natural world to others. Morrison hopes to build a career in biodiversity conservation and is currently in charge of developing and implementing new Conservation Expeditions.
