31 March Climbing in the European Alps

Climbing in the European Alps

In 2013 and 2014, Nina Sawicki spent two summers climbing in the European Alps, doing a full traverse of Mont Blanc and ascents of Le Dent Du Geant (the “Giant’s Tooth”) and other 4,000m peaks. The Dent Du Geant (4,013m) is a sharp rock pinnacle which sits at the western end of the Rochefort Ridge and has a 139 m step just before the summit.

Twelve Months on the Great Green Sponge: Living, exploring and hunting rabbits on a sub-Antarctic island

In 2012 Cameron Walker and his wife Kelly spent 12 months living on Macquarie Island, home to many migratory species including the endangered wandering albatross. They were part of a pest eradication project with the ultimate goal of eradicating rabbits, rats and mice. Living in the field in modified water tanks on a small island constantly battered by the furious fifties, dodging four tonne elephant bull seals and watching the Aurora Australis dance overhead were all part of a life changing adventure.
