Brazilian Amazon 2005

In 2005, the staff of Rainforest Action Network came to the Brazilian Amazon to witness first-hand the results of their labors. We stayed at Tataquarra Lodge along the Xin Gu River, one of the north-south tributaries of the Amazon.

Just getting there was somewhat arduous. We flew from San Francisco to New York to Sao Paulo to Brasilia to Belem and on to Alta Mira in the state of Para. From there we took a three-hour motor boat ride up the Xin Gu to the lodge. Our five-day stay included another three-hour boat ride to an indigenous village.
