Traveling to the Edge

An oryx climbs the steep sand dunes of the Namib Desert to catch the cool, moist breezes blowing in from the Atlantic Ocean, some 20 kilometers away. These oryx do this in the heat of each day as the air if vital to cool the blood going to the brain and the moisture is may be the only water they receive for the day.
