The Succulent Karoo, in the Namaqualand region of South Africa, is famous for its diversity of species and beautiful carpets of flowers on display during the spring. Scientists come from all over the world to study and protect this area. Meet Dr. Philip Desmet: one of thousands who dedicates time to understanding the environment of Succulent Karoo. His efforts ensure that our conservation work is focused and effective, and that we are doing all that we can to conserve it. | http://southafrica.conservation.org Follow CI on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/ConservationOrg Follow CI on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/conservation.intl
