I amI AM Amazon
Lonely cycle-travelers join forces and embark on an extreme journey, to draw attention to the destruction of the Tropical Forest in the Amazon, to the violation of the human rights of its inhabitants and to give a message:
whoever touches the Amazon, touches everyone!
Cross the Brazilian Amazon Forest by bike on the “BR230, Rodovia Transamazonica”. Equatorial heat and suffocating humidity, tropical diseases that are not always curable, life-threatening animals and insects, high risks of armed robbery. A dangerous 2500 km route from Belem to Labrea, the dead end of the Trans-Amazon. Then reverse and head south in the Bolivian Forest up to the Andes at 4500 meters and descend towards the Pacific Ocean.
A trip to the Great Forest to witness the close relationship between the conservation of Nature and respect for Human Rights: the destruction of the former is accompanied by the violation of the latter in a mad and inhuman spiral in the direction of the extinction of our species.
There is only one possibility: “Act as a species or die as individuals”
We are Amazon!
We believe that human race and Nature are indivisible. To ensure the survival of our species, it is necessary to halt the destruction of natural ecosystems and, above all, of forests, which are vital for the climate balance and biodiversity of the planet. To do this, it is enough to respect the human rights of those who live there.
We are three lone cycle travelers and we have decided to join forces for this dream. We are ready!
