EXPEDITION LEADER: NESS KNIGHT

EXPLORER – CONSERVATIONIST – TV PRESENTER

 

Ness Knight is an explorer, conservationist and ocean advocate who has completed a diverse collection of expeditions in extreme environments around the globe. Ness is currently filming an investigative documentary following the illicit rhino horn supply chain from the tip of Africa to the Far East.

 

Ness’ passion is for storytelling, uncovering spectacular wildlife and cultures surviving and thriving in extraordinary locations around planet Earth. Her documentary and investigative work focuses on the space where people and wildlife collide, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. We are at a tipping point in the state of Planet Earth, and Ness’ mission through media and hard hitting films is to lead the next generations to finding solutions to the problems we face today.
