Adventure Science Scouting in Africa: Top 10 Photos

National Geographic Emerging Explorer Gregg Treinish founded Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation, a nonprofit organization connecting outdoor adventurers with scientists in need of data from the field. He also organizes his own expeditions, contributing to research on wildlife-human interaction, fragmented habitats, and threatened species. In that spirit, his blog posts appear both here on Explorers Journal and in Beyond the Edge, the National Geographic Adventure blog.


This past week I left my home in Bozeman, MT to travel across the world to Africa, narrowly escaping the -30 degree Fahrenheit cold snap that had set in. I’ve been in Botswana visiting the Limpopo-Lipadi wildlife reserve, exploring the possibility of a project there for my organization Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation. Here is just a short preview of what I’ve seen and done. Stay tuned for more when I get home!  Who says scouting trips can’t be exceptionally fun?

    I always dream to go on an African Safari but could never afford it , I love all animal but especially Cheetahs . I believe in my past life I was a Cheetah , I am getting old now (59) and still dream one day I will win the lotteries and be able to pay for a safari with my girlfriend . I guess it doesn’t hurt to dream . I love all your shows thank you so much for putting a smile on my face
