About Science, Rock Climbing, and Conservation

How cliffside ecology is unlocking a new paradigm for mountain rainforests
What happens when a team of rock climbers, biologists, and conservationists sets off on an unconventional expedition into one of the world’s least explored and most threatened habitats— Mount Namuli, Mozambique? Author, professional climber and social entrepreneur Majka Burhardt shares a story how an unlikely collaboration created a grassroots conservation model for mountain communities in Africa and beyond.

Majka Burhardt is the founder and executive director of Legado, where she works to protect the world’s most threatened mountain ecosystems by empowering the people who call them home. She is also a Jackson resident.
