The Eco-Odyssey Amazon expedition: Nov-Dec 2011

• Two of our team members participated in the 'Worldwise Expedition' to Brazil's Amazon regions. By river boat and smaller river canoes, our crew explored the upper reaches of the Rio Negro, departing from Manaus and continuing north towards Santa Isobel.


• Multiple tributaries were explored and team members Janot Prat and Cara Blomfield set off to hike, climb, and walk some of the most remote regions of the Amazon jungle. Mission accomplished, great job team!
