Toute bonne chose à une fin! Dernière journée de voyage aujourd'hui! Et c'est avec plus de 20 000m d'ascension verticale dans les 11 derniers jours, un sommet tout les 48 heures et beaucoup d'heures de sommeil en moins que je reviens au bercail enchanté et satisfait de ce voyage. De ma famille et amis à la maison qui avez suivie ce voyage. À tout ces gens que nous avons rencontrés sur notre chemin et qui nous ont ramassés sur les bords de routes. À ceux assez fou pour nous suivres dans nos aventures d'alpinisme et qui n'ont pas hésité à dormir avec nous à la belle étoile sur les bords d'autoroutes. À ceux qui nous ont hébergés et offerts leur hospitalité. Je vous remercie! Je reviens à la maison pleins de souvenirs et de nouvelles amitiés. Aventurier pour la vie ✌️ Prochaine destination: Amérique du Sud #arcteryx #blackdiamondequipment #outdoorreasearch #marmot #mountaineering #discovertheworld #brooksrangemountaineeringadventure #brooksrangemountaineering #usa #canada @nomadic_piper @jesse_keca @ludo.ldoucet

Only in a virgin wilderness can you be able to thrash around through a dense rainforest making all kinds of noises, and then stop, and after 5 minutes of calling- have this rabbit-sized antelope, the blue duiker, appear out of thin air. • • • Despite its small size and secretive nature, duikers are some of the most vulnerable species threatened by the bush meat epidemic in Africa. The more lucrative poaching of rhino and elephant get all the attention in the press, but speaking in sheer loss of biodiversity, the bush meat crisis is perhaps the biggest danger to African wildlife. Even places like the Serengeti lose wildlife to the small and widespread use of snares and other traps by hungry locals. Before these poor communities will stop exploiting their animal neighbors as food, a value-incentive must be placed on the animals. This is why community-involved conservation is so vital. Local communities must see the profits of ecotourism in their area (I.e.- have full bellies) , otherwise , conservation efforts will fail. @africanparksnetwork is leading the way in this community based conservation model. • • • Bush duiker male photographed in the @chinko.project in the #centralafricanrepublic circa 2009. This animal was completely wild, and coaxed into camera range when my friend (an ex-ivory poacher) called it in by pressing down on his nose and giving a distress call similar to a cow's moo. He appeared like an elf in an enchanted forest • • • • #goatworthy #probar #themoderndayexplorer #nikontop #instagood10k #africansafari #african_portraits #livebravely #optoutside #expeditionunknown #exploretocreate #trailchat #neverstopexploring #patagoniatrailrunning #hokaoneone #brooksrangemountaineering #foryourmountain #folkgreen #africanwildlife
