From the depths of the Colorado River to the halls of the White House, Mandela will talk about whitewater, biodiversity and ongoing conservation efforts in order to prevent expanded uranium mining in the Grand Canyon.

With over a decade of experience as an expedition trip leader and guide in the Grand Canyon, Mandela has a unique perspective on the wonders of this majestic landscape.
