Brando Yelavich

Brando Yelavich was 19 when he started out on his quest to become the first person to walk the entire coastline of New Zealand. 600 days and 8000km of self-propelled travel later, he made it (after nearly drowning). Living off 'the land, the sea and the kindness of others', Brando has seen our environment in a way few have been able to glimpse. His adventures were published in a book bearing his nickname: "Wildboy".
