Imagine three scientists slowly moving on the ground of a forest that existed long before man came along on the planet. Imagine the endeavour looking for new species of snakes, chameleons, frogs that no one has seen before, while opening a path between ferns and shrubs as tall as a man and a canopy that reaches 50 m high. Imagine the silence of dawn and waiting, the anxiety and the joy for a new discovery.
On our planet, there are still places where the unknown is real and tangible, where no one has gone before and species as yet unnamed roam. They are the montane rainforests of northern Mozambique, part of the Eastern Afromontane Hotspot of Biodiversity, pristine and magnificent, that have endured for over 30 million years. It will be 6 weeks of fieldwork into the forest of Mabu, Namuli, Ribauè, Injese, Mecula, and other mountains yet yet to be fully explored.
Imagine a film crew going along, recording everything and working on making a documentary of this journey.
You will see one of the last explorations ever.
