When 500 students "step outside" fabulous things happen. Our 2017 Calendar captures just a small selection of their adventures from the fields of over 60 countries.

Jamie Cranston was in a rush to get back to his solo tent. He had just seen a solitary fox and - alone himself - he worried that it might be the first of a pack of Pyrenean wolves. Collecting Rhododendron leaves for genetic testing didn’t seem quite such a good idea.

Crossing continents and the leaf gatherer had become the hunter. Claudia Comberti had joined young boys on the Rio Heath, bordering Bolivia and Peru. Cheeks full of coca leaves, they were watching for tapirs and turtles at the water’ edge.

Sunken wrecks off Bermuda, a dagoba temple in Sri Lanka, avoiding icebergs – ilulissats - in Greenland’s Disko Bay, high-carat diamonds in the Namib desert, the extraordinary Nilometer in the heart of Cairo, Hawaii’s volcanic landscapes via helicopter – are some of the images you’ll find in the calendar.
