Victor Emanuel Nature Tours

Houston Audubon's long-time travel partner, Victor Emanuel Nature Tours (VENT), is the largest company in the world specializing in birding tours. This year they will offer 140 tours to more than 100 destinations ranging from the Texas coast to the forest-clad Himalayan highlands of tiny Bhutan, to the huge expanses of Brazil's bird-rich Pantanal, and to Antarctica, Africa, and many places in-between.

Victor Emanuel Nature Tours offers departures for Houston Audubon members. The camaraderie shared among chapter members strengthens the chapter and provides an excellent opportunity to brainstorm program ideas and challenges. A more direct partnership benefit is a $500 donation to Houston Audubon's habitat conservation, education, and advocacy programs when an HA member signs up for designated tours.

On a personal level, Victor is a native Houstonian and calls the Upper Texas Coast his favorite birding place. He started birding the region when he was just eight years old. Victor is an Houston Audubon Advisory Board Member and has championed many Houston Audubon conservation projects.
