Titanic Spa, a pioneering eco-spa located in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, has announced the launch of its ‘Spa for Our Planet’ campaign, a year-long campaign dedicated to supporting the conservation of wildlife and building a better future for the planet in collaboration with the Born Free Foundation.

Titanic Spa has created a year-long programme designed to give back and take action when it comes to protecting wildlife and creating a more sustainable planet. This programme offers an exclusive package of an overnight break and on each purchase, Titanic Spa will work with the Born Free Foundation to provide an exclusive adoption pack, whereby support will go towards protecting some of the world’s most vulnerable wildlife species.

The first package, ‘Orangutans in the Wild’, which launches in July is dedicated to the support of the orangutan conservation projects in Borneo. An exclusive ‘Orangutan in the Wild’ cocktail will also be available in the spa’s award-winning bar with a donation from the profits going straight to Born Free.

By purchasing the ‘Orangutan in the Wild’ Spa Break, guests will be supporting Born Free’s TimTom, a beautiful Bornean orangutan who was rescued in 2016. Not only will the package provide a helping hand to an orphan on her journey back to the forest, it will also support the wider conservation efforts to orangutans in Borneo. The tropical forest within Lamandau Wildlife Reserve provides a natural environment for TimTom and around 600 other orangutans, half of which have been rescued and released into the protected habitat. Through the support of adoptions, a healthy wild population of orangutans has been established inside the reserve that continues to thrive in a forest that is protected from habitat loss.

Shockingly, there are now only 55,000-104,700 of the Bornean orangutans, 14,000 of the Sumatran orangutan, and 800 of the Tapanuli orangutan left on the planet and with fragmented and declining populations this beautiful species is now classified as critically endangered and teetering towards the brink of extinction. With a risk of disease, large scale deforestation and human encroachment, the powerful orangutan population is extremely vulnerable.

With small changes, come great rewards and with the launch of its Spa for Our Planet campaign, Titanic Spa is proud to be able to provide its guests with the opportunity to both invest in their own wellbeing, yet also help to make a difference on a larger scale.

On the launch of the package, Warrick Burton, director at Titanic Spa says, “Helping to protect the planet with sustainable practices has long been a major part of our ethos, however, we can’t help but see the wider issues that come with the conservation of our earth. It is heart breaking to see the amount of species on the extinction list and witness the deforestation and climate change that causes this issue. We knew that we could help make a difference and by launching the Spa for Our Planet campaign we hope our customers, old and new, will join us in this mission to build a better future”.

The Orangutan in the Wild package costs from £195 per person and includes:

  • Complimentary use of robes, towels & slippers
  • Accommodation & continental breakfast in luxury serviced apartment
  • 1 course light lunch
  • 2 course evening meal
  • Access to the Heat & Ice experience
  • Exclusive access to Bar 1911
  • Access to the Leisure Club
  • Access to Relaxation Lounge
  • Born Free Adoption Pack

With eco-credentials like no other, Titanic Spa has led the way when it comes to green initiatives in the spa industry, yet, with an ever-changing world the spa knows that we, as a nation, can do so much more.
