The Turkana Basin Institute’s Fall 2014 Origins Field School has begun. Students arrived in Kenya on the 4th and travelled up to Mpala Ranch yesterday. It was a wet, rainy day – but we did get to see some amazing wildlife on the way to the campsite, including giraffe and elephant.
This morning we went out exploring and began our introduction to the ecology of the African savannah and the evolution of life and biodiversity. We climbed a beautiful kopje that gave us stunning views over the bush and plains.
Here are a few photos from our morning climb/adventure:
Check back soon – we will have a lot more to share with you!
