Due to poaching, habitat degradation and retaliation killings there are between 3,500 and 6,500 snow leopards left in the wild. Catherine is looking for people with the power and passion to join Team Snow Leopard and take on this expedition to help stop the illegal trade of this beautiful and illusive, yet endangered animal.

As well as the opportunity to experience the unique terrain, culture and wildlife of the Namib desert and Skeleton Coast this expedition also offers the opportunity to develop your own leadership and communication skills which you can take back into everyday life and the work place, Catherine said “To work as part of a team capable of preparing, planning and leading this desert expedition offers transferable skills which can be taken straight back to the boardroom. For me it’s about teamwork, overcoming challenges in the face of adversity and going that extra mile when the tank is empty.”

The Endure 6 Skeleton Coast Expedition takes place 9th – 21st November 2015, for more information visit: and to register your interest email [email protected]
