She made the expedition flying a paramotor solo across 11 countries and covering over 7,000 km. She travelled from the arctic region in Russia to United Kingdom. Bewick’s Swan is an endangered migratory bird.
Dench plans a new expedition named “Flight of the Osprey” just like the Flight of the Swans. In this expedition, she will highlight threats faced by Osprey. She plans to follow Osprey’s western flight path starting from UK. The conservationist hopes to have a clear picture of the Osprey’s route.
