I am looking to make some significant journeys to investigate the impact of habitat fragmentation and other human conflicts with wildlife.

I am looking for ideally two more teammates to take on a human powered journey over three/four weeks in the Summer of 2017 and possible other future trips of a similar nature. This would ideally be by hiking, horse riding, canoeing, pack rafting or a mixture of methods, following wildlife corridors such as a river or migration routes.

HIKEbelinda kirk1 Comment

Over the next five years, the Transcaucasian Trail (TCT) project aims to develop a world-class, long-distance trail network across the Caucasus, linking roughly two dozen existing and proposed national parks in the region. The network will consist of two intersecting trail corridors, each roughly 1500 km long. One corridor, oriented east to west, will connect the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, and the other, oriented north to south, will connect the Greater Caucasus and the Lesser Caucasus.

Crossing Iceland by Pack Raft - Team-mates needed

HIKE, PACKRAFTbelinda kirkComment

I’m organising an expedition to cross Iceland by pack raft this summer. The team will start in Akureyri and trek approximately 140km until the headwaters of the Thjorsa river are reached. Here the team will split with some of the team continuing south to Viki on foot, and the remainder of the team paddling the length of the Thjorsa river south west to the coast. For both teams we are expecting the journey to take about 2.5 weeks.
