ROSIE STANCERExploration & Expeditions
Memorably described by one journalist as “a cross between Tinkerbell and the Terminator,” Rosie’s appearance belies the inner strength that has so successfully propelled her to previous polar success. A diminutive 5’3,” Rosie Stancer is not built in the image of Scott, Shackleton and Amundsen. Her achievements are testimony to the fact that dreams can be realised through skill, determination and courage.
We are immensely thankful to our past and current expedition sponsors and without whom, we wouldn’t be able to take the first steps of any of these great journeys.
If you would like to participate in sponsoring us to make these projects happen, we would be delighted if you would contact us.
In August 2021, two intrepid British women took on the grit, salt pans, sand drifts and mud of one of the planet’s youngest deserts, born of what is recognised as one of our planet’s worst man-made environmental disasters. The Aral Kum.
Rosie was accompanied by her erstwhile polar and expedition teammate of long, Pom Oliver.
Rosie lead her small team through the desertscape of the Aral Kum, once a bountiful inland sea. The expedition serves as a clarion call to the devastating effect of water drainage to feed such industries as fashion.
Whilst observing the legacy of that fast fashion has bequeathed the planet, they learnt what measures have and are being undertaken to redeem the situation and their efficacy.
