About

Ness Knight

Explorer | Presenter | Speaker

q

Ness’s great passion is for discovery… of new places, cultures and wildlife. She lives for adventure and is prepared to go to the ends of the Earth to uncover stories from the wild.

 

Ness is fascinated by unique cultures and ways of life, getting to understand how communities survive and thrive in extreme environments. Her great love is for story-telling and documentaries, taking people with her on journeys to explore the far reaches of our planet.

 

Ness believes that it is when we challenge ourselves, and step outside our comfort zone, that we grow. Her mission back at home and through her motivational speaking is to show others that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary things, encouraging the next generation into natural sciences, conservation and discovery, to find solutions to the problems out world faces today. Her expeditions and work have taken her to some incredible corners of the world, but Ness believes there is still so much yet to discover.
