The Project C:CHANGE 2020 Kilimanjaro charity climb will see 12 climbers from around the world ascend to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, to generate awareness about the illegal wildlife trade and the 6th mass extinction while aiming to raise USD$150,000 in total for wildlife and rainforest protection.
Mount Kilimanjaro is the world’s tallest free-standing mountain, with its highest point reaching 19,341 ft. Known as the “Rooftop of Africa,” it is also one of the Seven Summits of the World. It will be a challenging eight-day journey using the Lemosho route to summit Uhuru Peak, battling altitude and five different ecological zones (Cultivation, Rainforest, Heather-Moorland, Alpine Desert, Arctic). The entire trip will be carbon offset and self-funded by the climbers.
According to scientists, Mt. Kilimanjaro’s glaciers may disappear entirely in the next 20 years as a result of climate change. Project C:CHANGE will witness this change first-hand and will document the glacier as they climb to the top of the summit.
