On the Expedition we will do the following:
· We will lead a kayak expedition down the Rawanduz River of Kurdistan, northern Iraq in May of 2014 with a team of professional kayakers, river advocates, and a videographer who will conduct outreach to local communities raising awareness about river threats.
· The story of the expedition will be retold in a short film, which will chronicle this record-setting first kayak expedition down the full length of the Rawanduz River in northern Iraq. The film will be used to raise awareness locally and internationally, showcasing the tourism potential of these rivers and demonstrating how they can be protected and used sustainably (The fundraising campaign will largely cover this part of the project)
Contributors to the Indiegogo Expedition fund-raising campaign will have different benefits at the variou levels of support (anywhere from $1 to $5000) from t-shirts and bumper stickers, to birding,hiking, and river trips in Iraq, ACA Membership, and even your own kayak! U.S. contributions are tax deductible.
You can read the full story on Indiegogo or the program website. We only have 21 days left to raise the funds we need, so please support the Rawanduz Kayak Expedition Campaign on Indiegogo, and help us spread the word by sharing this link and encouraging your contacts to support the Expedition.
