Adventure Backdrop

You are a researcher learning about new environments and the creatures that live within them. You worked hard to learn about life on our planet, and now you are heading off on your first solo adventure.

You will need your adventurous spirit and curiosity to take this journey. You brought only your hiking boots and a backpack filled with the items you think you need to survive in the wild. You hope it's enough to explore multiple ecosystems and all kinds of weather!
