Orangutan Research on Borneo
Wilhelm Osterman, founder of The Biotrotter, is currently on Borneo: I am conducting research on wild orangutans as a research assistant through the university in Zürich. I will live stay at Tuanan research station, trekking in muddy swamp forests. I will observe their habits all day long and at the same time he will also work with conservation of the orangutans:
Biotrotter in Africa
Read about when The Biotrotter went around in southern and eastern Africa, to interview researchers working with endangered animals! From the rainforests of Madagascar, to the open plains of Masai Mara and the deserts of Nambia. Camping for about two months in the African wilderness and hiking over 300 km, this was an ultimate adventure to find some of the rarest and most endangered animals on the planet.
Environmentalists going to South America
Joel Lönnqvist, co-founder of The biotrotter and Brenda Vidal, master of environmental science, are going by boat to the new world! They will try out how it is to do woofing, and will live on sustainable farms all over the continent. They will of course also go to the Amazons and other national parks to explore the amazing biodiversity found nowhere else in this world!
