This time, heading to the South Pole! The purpose of this expedition is to tell the story of a remote place in the world. The intention is to create 2 products, book and video documentary that demonstrate the greatness and importance of this place

What I propose is this: To do a work that is striking, a work that brings a vision of Antarctica and that all of us can know a little better that place. But most of all, try to realize how climate change is endangering this place and these animals. Interview scientists, guides, people working at this location! I do not have any help, so I need to resort to crowdfunding and help me get this job done. Without help it is impossible to do this. So I propose that you trust my work again and that you can help a new story to emerge! Help me bring a new message and I can pass it on to everyone! Below you will see a presentation of the North Pole Documentary and a cover photo of the book. Thank you so much!!

About the author

Professor of Physical Education Training, Pedro Rego left his teaching career in 2012 to devote himself to full-time photography. A freelance photographer and owner of the company GO WILD, he dedicates himself mainly to nature photography, having as its privileged space the Nordeste Transmontano. Deer and birds of prey are his photographic animals, but what fascinates him is the Iberian wolf. Winner of four prizes in contests, standing out the last one, in which he obtained the 1st place of the National Contest of Photography Quercus / BMW, in the category Aves. He currently works on several projects in partnership with Nature Associations and has his solo project entitled "Wild State". Alongside this project is another one in execution, titled "The Necrófagas" - a portrait of the necrófagas birds of the Iberian Peninsula. It has a new book, a work recently developed in the Serengeti, in Africa, where it will address issues of a conservationist nature, directed towards the great predators and also to a very threatened animal, the elephant. We are currently undertaking a major national project on the Rio Rabaçal - Valpaços Already published his first book, "North Pole - The Final meltdown" portrays the situation of the Arctic relative to the thaw, as well as the worrying situation that lives the Polar Bear. In December, he released the Documentary that has the same name as the book. Continuing his long-term project, this time he intends to do the same kind of work, but in the distant South Pole!

    Muito obrigado!!!

    Caros apoiantes da Expedição!

    Resolvi enviar-vos esta pequena mensagem dando conta do estado da Expedição. Neste momento contamos com 20% do valor necessário, o que já é muito bom, mas claro, ainda curto relativamente ao valor final. Tenho-me desdobrado em contactos para conseguir patrocínios, uma vez que é sempre mais fácil para uma empresa poder apoiar que individuais. Ainda falta um longo caminho e temos cerca de 2 semanas e meia! Pedia-vos que pudessem passar a palavra e tentassem convencer amigos e familiares a poderem contribuir com alguma coisa. Nem que seja o valor mínimo, isso iria ajudar!
    Espero que brevemente vos possa transmitir mais novidades! Até lá, continuarei a fazer de tudo para que esta expedição possa ser uma realidade! Bem hajam por todo o apoio que têm dado!! O meu ENORME OBRIGADO!!!
