“Wings of Survival” is a groundbreaking expedition initiated by Dr. Timm Döbert (ecologist and explorer) and Leanna Carriere (extreme endurance athlete). In June 2024, the duo will set out on a self-powered 30,000km expedition, traversing the spine of the Americas through the westernmost migratory bird flyway. Core goals include raising awareness around the biodiversity crisis, advancing environmental science and mobilising action for nature conservation.
Uniquely blending human adventure, citizen science and athletic performance, they hope to portray the wonder of bird migration and the critical relationship between migratory birds and ecosystem health. “Healthy planet, healthy humans”
