Paddling with Purpose is creating projects to advocate the the importance of a free flowing Marañon River, Source of the Amazon. We are setting up a grass roots advocacy campaign in Peru ‘Remando Juntos por el Marañon’. We have expeditions in 2015 to create a short film about this river & also to train & engage local communities in growing tourism in the area.
