Media Press - Contributions in Conservations & Education
Few articles and publications related to some of our expeditions and work.
We are first and foremost passionate people, We have never worked for publications and communication,.

Our plan now is to communicate about our actions and come out of the shadows, in order to obtain significant media coverage and visibility to defend the causes we are supporting.
