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!

Did you know?

Holding the title for 'fattest animal in the world' , the Bowhead whale has up to 50 tons of blubber helping to keep it warm at home in the Arctic. It is also known as the "Arctic whale" or "Greenland right whale".

Some studies have suggested the Bowhead whale can live up to 200 years! They are quite possibly the oldest living mammal on earth...and they also have the largest mouth of any animal!
