Wings of Survival Expedition

In June 2024, ecologist Dr. Timm Döbert and endurance athlete Leanna Carriere will embark on a pioneering 30,000km self-powered expedition across the Americas. Following the westernmost migratory bird flyway, their journey aims to highlight the biodiversity crisis and inspire environmental conservation efforts.

By uniquely blending human adventure, citizen science and athletic performance, they hope to portray the wonder of bird migration and the critical relationship between migratory birds and ecosystem health. "Healthy planet, healthy humans".

The expedition will be featured in a professional documentary to be developed by Moving Artistry Productions and TopTop Studio; Wings of Survival teaser and mini-doc provide a glimpse into this epic adventure.

The scope of this expedition offers a tremendous opportunity for collaboration. Your support brings us closer to accomplishing our shared goal of a more healthy planet for all.
