One of many amazing and slightly scary views in La Paz

En-route to the Pando I took the opportunity to introduce our project to HM Government’s Ambassador in La Paz, His Excellency Ross Denny, and to learn of UK Government funded projects in Bolivia.  I was also very interested to hear that whilst Governor of the Ascension Islands, Ross Denny had been involved in the protection of a rare endemic fern and in the conservation of a historic cloud forest planned by Joseph Hooker, founder of the RBG Kew on the advice of Charles Darwin!

We also discussed the possibility of arranging him to visit our project in the field which would be a great support to us with the local government and media.
