Nuorolinės paskaitos.

Šios savaitės paskaita - Expedition to the End of the World: Neblina, Duida and the Western Tepuis.
Friday 29th, 8:00 pm UK Time


Meeting ID: 893 9300 8526

In 2004, I was very fortunate to take part in (what remains) by far, the most epic expedition I have been involved in (out of 300+ expeditions). With two friends, I charted two helicopters and two cessnas to transport fuel, and set out to reach Neblina, Aracamuni, Avisa, Aratityope Duida and other Western Tepuis.

We set out to rediscover several lost carnivorous plant species (Drosera meristocaulis, Heliamphora macdonaldae, H. neblina, H. parva and the possible carnivorous orchid Aracamunia).

We reached mountains (which still today, less than 10 people have ever stood on), met fascinating Amerindian tribes little impacted by the outside world, encountered iridescent-blue Stegolepis hitchcockii, a near run in with a deadly fer-de-lance snake and even had an unfortunate machette incident along the way!

This talk is all about travel to EXTREMELY remote locations, amazing plants, interesting animals, danger and adventure!
