In addition to leading conservation expeditions Andrea's free time is spent largely on wildlife photography and film, she uses this medium to make conservation education films targeted at rural communities.  https://vimeo.com/122348256 - Have a look for yourself!

Ed is very much English; a cotswold country side fella where birding with his grandparents captivated him from a young age and fuelled his love for wildlife. After graduating at Cheltenham College and securing a BA (Hons) at Newcastle University Ed quickly escaped the UK and went off to explore East Africa where he remained for a few years working on several wildlife conservancies. Ed is particularly interested in utilising adventure sports within wildlife conservation.

Andrea and Ed met at the Durrell Institute of Conservation Ecology, University of Kent where they both graduated with an MSc in Conservation.
