A Year In The Wild

From 12 June 2011 to 30 June 2012, Scott Ramsay will be exploring and documenting the wild places of South Africa. The goal is to promote the conservation of the country’s natural wonders, by sharing his photos, videos and blogs with the world via social media.

He’ll travel to 31 of South Africa’s most special wilderness and wildlife areas. In these unique areas, he’ll be interviewing rangers, community leaders, environmental and cultural activists, ecologists, scientists, researchers, travellers and school kids.

“Ultimately I’d like to raise awareness of African wilderness – and why it’s important to the people of the continent and the world”, said Scott.

Here at Finding Africa, we will be following Scott’s journey with much interest and bringing your updates along the way.
