On May 8 I will commence hiking the Continental Divide Trail from the US/ Mexico border in New Mexico up along the continental divide to Canada. The Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (CDT) runs 5000km (3,100 miles) following the continental divide through New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana.
Around two hundred people a year attempt to hike the entire trail, taking about six months to complete it; I'm hoping to be finished in 5-6 months.
I'm excited to raise awareness and funds for the phenomenal direct-action work of Sea Shepherd. Their mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species. Their work is just as important for conservation of wilderness and wildlife on land - without the oceans, life as we know it ceases.
So please follow my journey on instagram @thebraveandthewild, online whimsyandwanderlust.com.au, and most importantly donate! :) Please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
