Inkaterra protects the pristine land surrounding its luxe Peruvian retreats with programs that preserve 30,000 acres of Amazon forest. Its newest property, the 18-suite Titilaka, is set on a private peninsula on Lake Titicaca (doubles from $960; 800-442-5042 or inkaterra.com).

Lindblad Expeditions develops conservation projects in the Galápagos and the other destinations its 12 ships sail to.
