Cue lurch of stomach, cue hammering of heart. It's go time.

The day is finally here. Kate, Ali, Rebecca and Lindsay start making their way across timezones and innumerable borders before landing in Tajikistan, officially the start of their expedition. It's a long journey to the Pamir Mountains - the "Roof of the World" - from Canada, time passed most likely reading books, striking conversation with seatmates and strangers, and that ever present fluttering of anticipatory butterflies signaling wild adventures ahead. 

Stay tuned to this website for updates and stories from the field. The goal of this expedition is to document the impact of borders on migratory wildlife, but also to inspire others to think, dream, and act beyond one's own borders - whatever shape that might take.
