Join the 2011 Expedition

Join the Adventure of a Lifetime and help save Arthur Conan Doyle's 'lost world'

In April 2011 Ibex Earth will be travelling back to Mount Roraima, Venezuela with the star of BBC 2's 'Decade of Discovery' Stewart McPherson and we are looking for ten people to travel with us and see one of the world's most breathtaking natural wonders as part of The Lost World Project.

The project looks to safeguard the long-term future of Mount Roraima, which is the South American plateau that inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write his famous adventure novel 'The Lost World' and has most recently been the major influence behind Disney Pixar's animated blockbuster 'UP'. Sadly Mount Roraima is now under threat from unregulated/unsustainable tourism, illegal goldmining and the introduction of non-endemic species of flora and fauna. The Lost World Project looks to raise funds to address these issues via the making of a broadcast quality documentary, which will be premiered at the Royal Geographical Society on 30th June 2010 and then on national television in late 2011/early 2012.

The filming aspect of The Lost World Project was completed last Autumn when Ibex Earth sent a critically acclaimed film crew to Mount Roraima with ten university students from the UK. The footage taken in Venezuela will form part of a fifty minute documentary that will air on national television in late 2011/early 2012. This part of the project has already won a number of awards and has been endorsed by both the Royal Geographical Society and the Zoological Society of London.

We are now looking for the final ten people to form the next expedition to Mount Roraima and would like to invite you to journey with us to a land that will leave you with memories to last a life time. The Itinerary of the April expedition is available to download directly from the Ibex Earth website on the link below:
