Flight of the Swans

Fujifilm is honoured to be sponsor to “flight of the Swans” expedition

‘Flight of the Swans’ is a mission that connects wildlife, wetlands and people; from the wilderness of  the arctic tundra all the way to Slimbridge, UK. One woman, 7.000 km, 11 countries, by Paramotor glider; a daring bid to fly with one of nature’s great migrations on a quest to save Bewick’s swans.

The movie puts a totally new spin on migration with an epic 7,000km journey by Paramotor glider from the Bewick’s Swans arctic breeding grounds back to the UK.

Sacha Dench and the expedition team will be flying the Bewick’s entire flyway, often at altitudes as low as 100m on a voyage that lasts as long as ten weeks; providing a birds eye view on the challenges facing these critically endangered birds. Once they’ve safely navigated the vast Russian tundra – and its polar bears – Sacha and the team will continue to track the swans’ progress through Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium and France.
