Photos from the field

The team finishes up the Wilderness Leadership School trail and starts off the biking portion.





Horuseb River Valley

From the beach east, back to Purros, 3 days…documenting the stories of local conservationists, fixing blistered feet, laying up in the shade during the heat; 86 km later arriving for a beer back at Purros camp!




Hiking the Skeleton Coast

Starting off in the dark and mist, 14 km south along the coast to the mouth of the Horuseb River.





Driving to Rocky Point

Driving from Purros to Rocky Point, across the Skeleton Coast. We stopped to slide down the “singing dunes,” and finally arrived to Rockey Pt where fur seals were fishing by their hundreds in the surf, cormorants were flying. Not to mention how cold it was!



Ready to Launch!

The team has assembled and is ready for the May 1st launch at Rocky Point!
