Galen Rowell's last trek

Go to

National Geographic published in the April issue an article by Rick Ridgeway about a trip to the Tibetan Chang Tang plateau, to find the calving grounds of chiru, the Tibetan antelope. The article is illustrated with beautiful pictures made by Galen Rowell, who unfortunately died in a plane crash few weeks after he returned from this trip.

A truly great story about altruistic people trying to save an endangered specie.
