As you may already know, we just got back from our first trip to the Bolivian Amazon! As one could imagine: it was incredible! And we are really looking forward to going back very soon… but this time, to accomplish our big adventure, the one we’ve been working so hard for, during a little over two years.
We would also like to invite you to follow us a little closer and even the behind the scenes of our project. For this, simply check out our Facebook Page, where you will find behind the Scenes and more photos of our trip.
Since we got back, we’ve been very busy preparing our BIG expedition and we still have a number of things to do!
One of the first things on our list was an important one. Some of your might remember that we promised a special reward during the launch of our crowdfunding campaign. As you might be aware, an adventure on the other side of the world that has us carrying over two hundred kg of equipment leaves a certain footprint on our environment (ie. travelling via airplane). We are aware that this environmental trace was in opposition with one of the expedition’s mission: to create awareness on the protection of the environment. So, we decided to make a move in the right direction to compensate, in order to respect a certain ethic in our approach. One of the rewards was to offer a percentage of the collected budget to an association that thinks alike and wishes to preserve the Amazon Rainforest. The decision to entrust this to an association such as the WWF was quickly profiled as being the perfect one. Indeed, what better than a Swiss-Born association for a project such as this one?
Thanks to this we can today, with great satisfaction, announce that we have met last monday (June 8th 2015) Mr. Thomas Vellacott, CEO of WWF Switzerland, who welcomed us in the WWF premises and with whom we were able to share a long and interesting talk. Our dialogue with him was mostly about our project «Objectif Sauvage», but also on the specific involvement of his organization regarding the preservation of the different eco-systems and the Amazon Rainforest. We came out of that interview convinced that WWF was the best choice and that our contribution will be used in the best possible way.
We therefore are very pleased to announce that the total amount of CHF 750 was successfully transfered to WWF Switzerland for the preservation of the Amazon Rainforests and all this is obviously THANKS TO YOU!
We would like to thank each contributor, each of our partners and sponsors for trusting us and allowing us to collect this amount. Be reassured that it will be, undoubtedly, used in the best possible ways by the WWF team.
We would also like to thank Mr. Vellacott, and his entire team for giving us this opportunity. For their kindness and for making this interview possible. Sir, your enthusiasm for our project has really touched us and filled us with a lot of satisfaction. From our hearts we’d like to say: THANK YOU.
We also would like to invite you to visit the website of the WWF Switzerland. And last but not least, here is a little quote to think about: «Small streams make big rivers»
We wish everyone a great week! See you soon for more adventures and surprises! Stay in touch and get ready for a journey into the heart of the Amazon Rainforest.
Thank you to all.
