The team has completed the Ring of Darhad and arrived back in Ulaanbataar over the weekend. The expedition was a huge success and has collected important information about wolverines, snow leopards and other wildlife in the Darhad region that will inform wildlife research and conservation efforts there.

Special thanks to National Geographic for sponsoring this important research expedition. Huge thanks also to Montana State University for helping to develop the exceptional student lessons and to Boojum Expeditions for coordinating logistics in Mongolia.  This expedition would not have been possible without our amazing sponsors: Mountain Hardwear, Osprey Packs, Clif Bar, Horny Toad, Rite in the Rain, Supai Gear, The Brunton Group, NRS, AlpineAire Foods, Primus, Big Agnes, Smith Optics, Madshus, Baffin, Kahtoola, Steripen and Voile.
