Oman 2013 Expedition Video

The remote valleys of Southern Dhofar, Oman, are filled with a unique assortment of wildlife. Not many people have ever heard of Dhofar, so when you’re working to conserve that wildlife, this can be a significant first obstacle.

But hopefully the latest set of camera trap footage collected by the Oman 2013 team will help change that. Led by my good friend Lawrence Ball, they spent two months working in Wadi Sayq, building on the work of the 2012 expedition; and here are some of the fruits of their labour.

P.s. If you’d never heard of Dhofar, and are now glad that you have, then please do share this video.
