Mountain Biker, Surfer,
Buccaneer is on a mission! Our community platform is totally dedicated to action and adventure, participation and accessibility. We are intrinsically linked to the beautiful and wild places we surf, sail, kite, paddle, ride and climb so we want to help look after them.
For all of that we are totally focused on the most positive impact we can have on caring for our natural environment. Our planet is under threat, and we believe our app holds some of the keys to addressing the problem.
Our App is designed so that the bigger it gets in terms of locations, local service providers and participants, the more action and awareness we can encourage to make good things happen for our environment.
Buccaneer is a start up so it is difficult to consistently support the environmental initiatives it would like to. We are however making a pledge that once it is generating enough revenue to pay for its run-cost we will allocate 5% of our revenues (not profits) to go in to conservation and re-wilding projects chosen for their potential to remove many times more carbon from the atmosphere and protect our wild places.
Buccaneer focusses entirely on engaging its users with the local communities that surround the locations mapped in its directory. Our platform model ensures that 96% of any money spent through the app goes into the local economy.
This is incredibly important for conservation, because it creates viable local economic alternatives in rural areas, and increases the value of conserving natural landscapes.
