Paddling for conservation of the Amazon......
In 2013 we will be the first to undertake a 1300 km descent of the Amazon River using inflatable Stand Up Paddle Boards (www.redpaddleco.com) to raise funds for Rainforest conservation. We want to raise £6000 to buy a research boat to support the work of Entropika - an organisation dedicated to conservation of wildlife in the Amazon (www.entropika.org).

Lots of rain on Amazonian side of Andes ... landslide brought traffic to halt so we are overnight in Lago Agrio.. town in centre of Amazon oilwells. Highlight of day was Lorenzo seeing snow for first time as we crossed Andes at 4000 m altitude!
