Tonight one of our team members explained the purpose of our expedition on a regional news channel. Only three more weeks before departure! Tension is rising right now!
Meet the team: Frederik
Frederik has been passionate about wildlife since his childhood. He graduated as a biologist at Antwerp University in 2007 and started working as a biologist at Nature Rescue Centre Opglabeek. Frederik presents a TVshow “Animals in troubles” (“Dieren in Nesten”) on Belgian television. During his show he made an expedition to find Europes Big 5, searched for Lynx in Belgium and visited peoples homes to find mysterious animals. As a zoologist Frederik hopes to discover many mammals and other animals during this though, but unique expedition.
