Gabriel Mejia was the winner of the Global Wetlands Youth Photo Contest 2017, themed “wetlands that help us cope with extreme weather events.”

An avid explorer, Gabriel decided to use his main prize, a free flight, to travel and visit the Glaciar Vinciguerra y Turberas Asociadas Ramsar Site in Argentina. He recounts his adventures and exploration in this story and through photographs.
