MBI Al Jaber Foundation
In March 2018, an MBI Al Jaber sponsored team of 4 set off on a cement cargo ship to try and reach Socotra, the ‘Galapagos' of the Indian Ocean, for a scouting expedition with the eventual aim of conducting an on-foot, island-wide transect. Their plan was to attempt to document this incredible place. In this talk Ella will discuss the expedition, as well as Socotra's uniqueness, including the quasi mystery of why the Dragons' Blood Tree is struggling and the communities, who are still part-time cave dwellers.
