COVID and Cancellation Policy

At this time, there is a travel advisory in place for Ecuador due to a Covid-19 spike in January. We anticipate that Covid-19 cases will drop in the coming weeks and months and are pressing forward with our travel plans. As the trip draws nearer, we will evaluate the situation and make the necessary adjustments or cancellation of the trip. Lincoln Children’s Zoo will not travel if the advisory remains at a level 4 and will issue full refunds for the trip.

Lincoln Children’s Zoo requires all travelers and staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before travel with limited exceptions. However, we do allow exemptions for medical and religious reasons.  We may also need proof of a negative COVID test taken within 48 hours of travel. The purpose of this policy is to help protect our travelers, employees, in-country partners and the people who live and work in the areas we travel. As the pandemic evolves, it is also clear that countries may require vaccination for entry or to bypass a possible quarantine.

We will continue following CDC and local health institutions for best practices for keeping travelers as safe and healthy as possible.

Travel insurance is not required, however it is recommended as this will make your trip refundable if the participant gets sick or encounters unforeseen circumstances and is not able to attend. For more information: https://www.volunteercard.com/understanding-travel-insurance/
