Guyana: Amazon women

On December 31st, 2005, a team of seven women set out on a 650km expedition whose aim is to map what they believe to be a new route through uncharted virgin jungle in Guyana, writes Amazon Rainforest. According to the expedition web site, this effort is in support of The Prince’s Trust Women Working campaign, and for expedition leader Rachel Kelsey it represents “a longstanding dream, to have a close team of determined women exploring an uncharted area of the world, to create a legacy for others to follow, to benefit a country inspired by our endeavours, and to support a cause of great importance.” The web site also features a map of the expedition route.
