Nomads

Follow the Expedition.

Digital Nomads Taylor Rees, Chris Burkard, Renan Ozturk and Eugene Kaspersky on a 14 days mission to create awareness for a remote, unprotected landscape.

There are not many spots left on earth that create genuine desire. Most places are well documented, researched and easily reached, even for non-adventurers. But then there are spots that are close to legendary. For Taylor Rees, Chris Burkard and Renan Ozturk, these are a few rock formations on the Kuril Islands. They dreamed for a long time to be the first people to stand on top of these rocks.

It's a region that is difficult to reach, geopolitically disputed, and not accessible without setting up a proper expedition. Their ultimate goal is a rock formation off Ushishir island. But they wouldn't do such an expedition for the purely hedonistic goal of being the first on a rock. "This is a unique opportunity to study a remote ocean ecosystem that is affected by both pollution and climate change, especially with impacts in region still poorly understood", says Rishi Sugla, an oceanography PhD-student joining the expedition.



While the Kuril Islands are a remote, untouched paradise, they are not a national park or an environmentally protected area of any kind. "I explored the Kuril Islands on a ship-based excursion back in 2014. I was stunned by their wild, untouched beauty, and tranquility," said Eugene Kaspersky. "This is a part of the world that deserves protected status, and our expedition will ultimately be calling for that."
