Into the Okavango
- Adjany Costa, Conservationist
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. An ichthyologist who studies the region’s freshwater fish, 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.
With every expedition, she has one foot in science and the other in community education, meeting with community leaders to educate them on the content of the basin and how conservation can benefit their future. 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.
