CONAPAC's Adopt-A-School Program In Action
Those of you who have participated in AAS April deliveries of school supplies know how rewarding this experience is. Adam Dewey of the Detroit Zoo has created a video to showcase the volunteer's perspective.
Head downriver to see just what goes on during Adopt-A-School delivery weeks.
Rotary Exchange Scholars News
Jhon Reategui from Sapo Playa is on his Rotary Exchange year in Maple Ridge, Canada, just outside of Vancouver, British Columbia. Jhon says he hasn’t found a Canadian dish that he doesn’t like and he has been enjoying exploring the great outdoors with his host family. Handling this kayak should be a cinch after paddling a dugout canoe his whole life.
 
Jhon still needs funding to help him pay for winter clothes and activities. http://www.gofundme.com/amazonstudyabroad
Robert Murayari from Yanamono, second from left, is off to a great start in Cupira, Brazil, a small town in the northeastern state of Pernambuco. He is enjoying his stay with his host family and getting to know his fellow Rotary Exchange students. He’s busy learning Portuguese. Robert says his favorite Brazilian dish is feijão e cuscuz, or beans with Brazilian couscous.
CONAPAC Amazon Library Field Trip
The Amazon Library hasn’t held a field trip since 2013, though we would like to have this be a yearly event. This year Fernando, our library director, found the finances to make it happen and Explorama hosted our trip to the ACTS Canopy WalkwayThe students with the highest participation at either of the libraries were selected to go. Fifteen students from the main branch and seven students from Sapo Playa, along with library staff, participated in the excursion. This was the first time on the Napo River and to the Canopy Walkway for any of the students. For them the trip was quite an educational experience, allowing them to see their rainforest home from a different perspective and to learn about the plants and animals that live there.
After the morning's activities the students enjoyed a hearty lunch at Explorama's ExplorNapo Lodge and then headed back to their homes on the Amazon River.

We're still looking for Adopt-A-Drop sponsors for 2016. It takes only $350 to maintain one community water treatment plant for a whole year.
