*not the primate, a 50cc Motorbike. The Monkey Run is all about getting lost, causing chaos, getting sand in your nether-regions and saving the world all at the same time. We will be riding for the adventure of it, but prior are raising funds for Cool Earth. There is no route while in Morocco beyond start(Sahara) / finish(Medina of Marrakesh), and no support - which sounded like a great idea at the time. The latest discussions in the media should be enough to underline how important this is! Let's help Cool Earth out! If you cannot donate at this time, we welcome you to follow along https://www.theadventurists.com/adventures/monkey-run-morocco/#5 We will update the map when we land. Cheers!
Cool Earth works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction.
Local people stand to lose the most from deforestation but the most to gain from its protection, that’s why they are the forest’s best possible custodians. All Cool Earth partnerships are community-owned and led.
By developing local livelihoods, their mission is to end the cycle of deforestation entrenching villages into further poverty. Creating strong, self-determining communities.
They are also the only charity that works solely where the threat to the forest is greatest, on the frontline of deforestation. They work strategically, each of their partnerships form a shield to make the neighbouring forest inaccessible to loggers – saving millions of acres of further forest.
Not only that but 90% of your donation goes straight to the rainforest and their indigenous partners. So whilst you’re zooming around on a tiny bike, you know that your risk taking tendencies and fundraising efforts are helping keep rainforest standing.
