“It’s very hard not to fall in love with Nepal and the Himalayas. The opportunity to collaborate with the Science in the Wild team and Sherpa scientists was also a wonderful way to learn more about the Sherpa culture.  I enjoyed to join as a citizen scientist in order to help the team fulfill their research when I could, as I am totally convinced of the necessity to conduct climate related research, and it was also a great opportunity for me as a photographer and film director.”  – Benjamin Pothier, Paris, France
