Desert Journey Into Wild Namibia

With Frans Lanting and Chris Eckstrom

Join Frans and Chris on a wild desert journey through a faraway corner of southwest Africa–Namibia, a little-known country that is making a big statement to the rest of the world.  The first nation to incorporate protection of the environment into its constitution, Namibia recently proclaimed its entire coastline as a national park–another first.  This year’s show features new images and video from the towering red dunes of the Namib Desert to the lashing South Atlantic seas that batter the “Skeleton Coast,” and will introduce you to unusual animals from the fabled desert elephant to the seldom-glimpsed brown hyena–and bring you eye-to-eye with eland, kudu, and the rare black rhino.  Proceeds from this presentation will benefit the Long Marine Lab’s Seymour Discovery Center.
