Expedition Background

Cue lurch of stomach, cue hammering of heart. It's go time.

The day is finally here. Kate, Ali, Rebecca and Lindsay start making their way across timezones and innumerable borders before landing in Tajikistan, officially the start of their expedition. It's a long journey to the Pamir Mountains - the "Roof of the World" - from Canada, time passed most likely reading books, striking conversation with seatmates and strangers, and that ever present fluttering of anticipatory butterflies signaling wild adventures ahead. 

Stay tuned to this website for updates and stories from the field. The goal of this expedition is to document the impact of borders on migratory wildlife, but also to inspire others to think, dream, and act beyond one's own borders - whatever shape that might take.

Borderski wins $10,000 Scott Pearlman Field Award

It's official...the Borderski expedition has won the $10,000 Scott Pearlman Field Award, an Explorers Club grant program in honour of the late Scott Pearlman, a photographer who at 22 became one of the youngest members of The Explorers Club. Sadly, he died of liver failure due to hepatitis C at the age of 38, "still looking for the perfect picture." It's a tremendous privilege to carry his name into the Pamir mountains through Borderski, and we'll strive to do everything we can to make the Pearlmans proud.
