Access founder @benhortonphoto on location shooting episode three with @eylenepirez in the Atacama desert. “Having an adventure in the name of science feels right and fulfilling. We learned so much about astronomy and space exploration in the Atacama and we’re excited to share our findings with you.” #accesschile #natureneedshalf

Dear friends,
We need your help!

The crowdfunding campaign is going slow. We still have 2 weeks left to our campaign. We have a chance to raise the money needed to shoot the rest of the series. Access Chile is close to wrapping the first 3 episodes but we still need help with the other 3. Please, share it so we can head out to Patagonia and cover the science of glaciology, the impact of river dams and the re-introduction of endangered species.
Anything helps! If all of you donate $3, we reach our goal!
Help us bring science literacy to the public and outdoor industry. Link in bio

Thank you for your support!

Shooting and episode with @benhortonphoto in this desert is an incredible experience. Having an adventure in the name of science feels right and fulfilling. This is how I'd like to spread science literacy and bring back the curiosity to explore. We just wrapped another episode of Access Chile!
We've learned so much about astronomy and space exploration in the Atacama and are excited to share this with you.
Places like this strengthens the bonds with nature and exploration. I cant wait for you to see it, even if it's through our eyes. .

Physics let’s you explore the universe without having to leave your own planet. @eylenepirez is one of those physicists who’s helping advance our knowledge of what makes our universe function. We’re here in the Atacama doing a story about adventure and science and how the some of the greatest adventures have been done in the name of science. @accesscampaign @roam #natureneedshalf

Summit day to the top of this beautiful 6,700m volcano.
We, @connor.guest  and I, started at 4am in Sub-Zero temps. We rode the side of the western snow banks and proceeded to tackle the Northern East ridge, a class 3 climb. This route is not easy but it really shows you the mountain. We climbed for 17hours. We went up in the dark and arrived back at  advanced camp in the dark.  This climb is more than a physical/mental challenge. It was an incredible experience to travel the paths the Incas would take to perform Capacocha, a bloodless sacrifice to the gods. They would choose children for the offering and sacrifice them on top of this volcano. This is where the world's best preserved mummies have been found. The history of our world is amazing. Go out there and explore it! We still have so much to learn. Let adventure be your vessel to knowledge. ---------------
A rare portrait of me on the mountain. Thank you,  @connor.guest for the adventure and your incredible work behind the lens!

To learn about the story and the role of sports in science, check out our show. Episodes  coming soon! We still need a lot of your support bringing  more episodes from the field.  Learn about our campaign! LINK IN BIO.

My mom @peggyhorton1951 told me there were penguins in Chile, and now every time I see a flamingo my brain tells me it’s a penguin. Is there a scientific term for that? #natureneedshalf

| Atacama |
The Andean flamingo is one of the rarest flamingos in the world. It lives in the Andes mountains of South America. These resilient birds are far from what you'd expect; High altitude, cold temperatures and arid desert dwelling flamingos.
This is a shot from this morning after spending hours with @benhortonphoto
Attempting to capture them. .

| Llullaillaco (6,700m) |
For months I've been obsessed with the Llullaillaco mummies. It inspired the series and put me and a whole team of people in one of the most ambitious set of adventures.
The most impactful adventures have been in the name of science, learning and understanding human history. We aim to do the same.
This episode is a mix of archeology, history and mountaineering in one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.

This landscape is incredible. I expected vast and empty, but it’s so full of details and fantastic nooks and crannies. This morning we drove up to 15,200 feet, the highest elevation I’ve ever been at. The real treat is going to be when we photograph the stars. #atacama #chile #natureneedshalf

I've been on the mountains and in the field for a month living out of whatever I can put on my back along with 15 pounds of camera gear. Behind all of this, there are tons of people who are supporting me.
This post is a special thanks to @arcteryxlabrea for keeping me warm and traveling light. Thank you for your endless support of your local adventurers and involvement with the community.
I've spent many days in my Firebee Parka and Theta SV bib out in the negative temperatures in crazy wind and storms. I've even worn it to bed when temps dropped to -30C. These two items have been my rock and life-savers. Celebrate wild, indeed! Can't wait to see you all at the store in a couple of months. .

Y2Y co-founder @locke.harvey has a newly released manuscript on the history of conservation targets and the international movement to protect half the world. It’s called “The International Movement to Protect Half the World: Origins, Scientific Foundations, and Policy Implications,” and it’s fascinating. ⠀
.⠀
In essence? "In a world where most news about the environment is grim and people often despair that nothing can be done, Nature Needs Half and Half Earth are similar frames that assert that a positive future is possible if we take actions big enough to make a difference." ⠀
.⠀
Half may seem like a lot, but @NatureNeedsHalf has a plan for how to get there and transform the way society thinks about nature. ⠀

| Aconcagua - Episode 1 |

For 15 days, every day was hard. Weather was brutal. I had no porter and chose to carry up to 30kg during my porter days. Some days the wind will throw me to the ground or force me to seek cover amongst rocks. The days of little sleep and hard trekking on the Guanacos side of the mountain really begin to show - wind burnt hands, scabby nose, cracking lips, pain in finger and aches. But everyday I had views like this. These moments will make your eyes water and validate your efforts. Everyday I met people who love exploration and sincerely cared for nature with the challenges that came with it. These connections stick with you forever.
I spent the dec 25th hiking 26 miles to be able to exit the mountain and meet the crew to continue shooting. We are heading to another 6,000m peak climb. My body has yet to fully recover but mentally I am stoked to bring another episode to life.
When I came off of Aconcagua, I saw our indiegogo surpassed $1000 in donations. Thank you for believing in me and supporting these efforts in bringing science and education to the all! Please, spread out our #indiegogo link in our bio for our show.
Happy new year. Can't wait to show you the episodes! ♥️ #accesscollective #accesschile #roam #aconcagua #alpinismo #alpinism #mountainculture #mountaineering #montanismo #doyoutravel #scienceadventure #science #natureneedshalf #womeninscience #womenwhoexplore #7summits

#Rewilding Wildlife Facts: Humpback Whale

Once hunted to the brink of extinction, its population fell by an estimated 90% before a 1966 moratorium. While stocks have partially recovered to some 80,000 animals worldwide, entanglement in fishing gear, collisions with ships and noise pollution continue to impact on the species.
Rewilding for whales and all other ocean life begins with vastly increased protections and fishing-free zones that allow for breeding and protection of ocean diversity and connectivity to seasonal breeding and food locations.

Dear friends,
I'm alive with many stories from the aconcagua climb for our first episode in high altitude survival. I got off the mountain at 1am yesterday and heading to my next climb with @connor.guest! Many stories and footage and updates to come!! This is at Camp Cólera before summit push (6000m). Polish route had to be abandoned due to poor weather. No one has yet to climb successfully the polish glacier this season. Go get it!! We have launched an indiegogo to help fund the rest of the episodes. I will be posting soon and could use all your social media wits to bring the full series to life with @roam
And @accesscollective.
Details to come.
For now, we keep on the field doing our best to bring you the best adventures science content we can!
The full story will be on the episode. Till then, you'll have to wait to hear about it.

Ten years ago, conservationists Harvey Locke and Vance Martin came up with the shocking idea to protect HALF of the planet. Now, this dream of theirs is on its way to becoming a reality. Read about the Nature Needs Half journey by clicking on the link in our bio!

Thank you @wildfoundation for partnering with indigenous peoples, international governments, private partners and young influencers of change in leading the charge to protect 50% of the planet by 2050. “Rarely do groups who play it safe revolutionize the world.” I would also argue, it’s too dangerous to not start playing.
