Discover our ecological causes

Thanks to your support, Natuurpunt and Natagora are better armed to protect and maintain green zones in Belgium, we have already worked with Cool Earth to take more than 1,000 hectares of rainforest into our protection and, with our membership of the EOCA, we are doing our bit to help European fauna and flora.    

A.S.Adventure and Natuurpunt since 1998    

Every day enthusiastic volunteers devote themselves to protecting and improving the diversity and quality of the nature in your neighbourhood. With more than 100,000 members and 22,800 hectares of green zone in 500 different nature areas under its management, Natuurpunt is by far the largest environmental association in Flanders. Every year its local divisions organise numerous activities, bringing people together to enjoy nature. Furthermore, it is actively involved in the government’s nature policy using private observations and scientific research groups.

Deforestation in the rainforest – representing 21% of all CO2 emissions worldwide – is one of the major causes of climate change. That is why Cool Earth is collaborating closely with Amazon communities to put an end to the deforestation of rainforests and the threat to ecosystems. In doing so it is helping to develop strong and confident communities who act as a shield to prevent lumberjacks from accessing adjacent forest. Thanks to your support, more than 10,000,000 m2 of rainforest is already under our protection and we have saved almost 600,000 trees from being chopped down.

The Walloon region's counterpart to Natuurpunt wants to stop the loss of biodiversity in Brussels and in the Walloon region. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, they are maintaining and restoring over 4,700 hectares of nature, and organising numerous activities along these green heritage sites - ranging from excursions to film presentations. Natagora’s top priority is to specifically protect the most endangered species. The tasks range from nest-building and hedge-planting right through to the development of environmental measures in partnership with local farmers.

As an outdoor retailer, A.S.Adventure is delighted to do something in return for the planet. That’s why we have teamed up with 130 European companies in the outdoor sector to offer financial aid to projects run by the European Outdoor Conservation Association. These range from the protection of endangered species and replanting rainforest to clearing natural areas and maintaining footpaths. The more companies that get involved, the greater our impact on preserving the outdoor world that we all depend on. Together we make the difference!
