Cathy Lindsay: Helping the Environment through Service Travel
For episode 20, I had the chance to sit down with Seattle-based osteopath Cathy Lindsay. Her lifelong love of nature and being outdoors eventually led her to explore the world as an adult. After multiple international trips to places like Grand Cayman, Bali, India and Peru, Cathy began shifting her travel focus. She now takes annual service trips – typically helping on environmental or animal research projects. Her service expeditions have included counting butterflies in North Vietnam, studying juvenile turtles in the Bahamas and Costa Rica, and studying wolves and bison in Alberta, Canada. She also recently traveled to Thailand to work in elephant and dog sanctuaries, and ended up providing support to the local community following a devastating flood. Cathy shares amazing stories about her adventures in learning and helping – showing us that travel with purpose is not only important, but deeply rewarding. Along the way she provides inspiration, tips and resources for those interested in doing good while traveling.
