My first taste of expedition life was 5 weeks spent immersed in the Malagasy rainforest at the age of 17. Overwhelmed by the people, wildlife and not so black and white issues of the worlds 4th poorest country, I was inspired to study biology with the innocently naive ambition of helping. Five years on, nothings changed, Madagascar is still in desperate need of attention as it's unique and wonderful wildlife teeters on the brink of disappearing.
