Guests will work alongside the Ladies and Gentlemen of The Ritz-Carlton, Shenzhen helping conservation experts to protect the mangrove wetlands at the Futian Nature Reserve through a combination of education and fieldwork.
“The Ritz-Carlton’s legacy of extraordinary service extends beyond the care and comfort we offer our guests to the communities in which we live and work”, General Manager Iwan Dietschi said. “This ‘Preserving the Wetland’ Give Back Getaways ‘voluntourism’ program offers our guests an exceptional opportunity to combine volunteer work with travel and give back to the community in a way that is meaningful to them and to the lives of others.”
