Doing conservation work is not always easy. In fact, it is usually very hard work. Collecting rocks, diging trenches, mixing cement, building rock walls. Enduring extreme heat and harsh desert conditions. Going days without showers or a roof over your head. Traveling in rickety old land cruisers over rough mountain terrain while documenting animal locations. Cooking basic food over a fire every night in basic pots. PB&J every day for lunch. Oatmeal every day for breakfast. no bathroom. living out of a backpack. three changes of clothes for over three months that are NEVER clean. loosing touch and closeness with your friends… and family.
It’s worth it though. We’re dong good work with the Elephants in Namibia and helping to protect them by protecting communities water sources and educating those communities about elephants.
here are some pictures from today which was spent in Walvis bay.
