Conservationist Adjany Costa is passionate about protecting the extraordinary wildlife and wild spaces of her native Angola—so passionate, in fact, that in order to study and save them, she is willing to live in a canoe for months at a time and face hippos, crocodiles, lions, and leeches. Costa is part of a team of local African researchers and experts, along with National Geographic filmmakers, photographers, and writers, exploring the Okavango River Basin from its headwaters in Angola all the way to its delta in Botswana. As one of the largest freshwater wetlands in southern Africa, the Okavango Delta is the main source of water for a million people and home to some of Africa’s richest biodiversity—truly one of the last wild places on Earth. Get an inside look at the challenges and hardships of life on expedition in this incredible environment, as well as the discoveries and accomplishments that motivate Costa to keep exploring.
