Cool Earth are the official charity of the Adventurists, to put it simply they save rainforest and they do a damn fine job of it. Now saving the rainforest isn’t a new idea. Managing to do it however is. Over the last 40 years, half the world’s rainforests have been destroyed. That’s why Cool Earth decided to go about things differently. They don’t create reserves or put up fences. They don’t buy land. Instead, they put indigenous people back in control of the world’s most endangered rainforest. These people have lived in the forest for countless generations and their homes are now on the frontline of deforestation. By building better incomes, better schools and better clinics, Cool Earth give their partner villages the resources they need to keep their forest intact. Cool Earth is now working alongside 113 rainforest villages throughout the world. These partner villages are protecting over 900,000 acres of forest that lie directly in the path of chainsaws and bulldozers. The clever part is that this forest forms a shield to make the neighboring forest inaccessible to loggers – saving millions of acres of further forest.
A small group of adventure enthusiasts and environment lovers will be setting out this July over 700km of potentially rugged Romania terrain all in a bid to raise awareness and support for the Cool Earth campaign.
Did we mention that this would be attempted on tiny motorcycles called monkey bikes? And what is a Monkey Bike you ask? Simply put it’s 50cc of pure mini bike power! Should be perfect for climbing the Carpathian Mountains and jousting blood thirsty vampires with environmentally friendly wooden stakes!
So, please help us raise some funds for Cool Earth and begin an end deforestation. 100% of your donations goes directly to Cool Earth and not our gas and beer fund! Thank you friends!
