In this one hour talk Chris Englezou will share his experiences navigating the wild and untouched jungles along the Rio Jandiatuba, an extremely undulating whitewater tributary of the Amazon in Western Brasil. With ever-encroaching threats from illegal gold-mining, deforestation for agriculture and logging, the remaining pristine waters of the Jandiatuba may not have much time left and for some habitats and species it already appears too late. Through the duration of this lecture Chris will show many of the wonderful aquatic treasures to be found along this life-blood vein supplying precious water for many known and uncontacted indigenous people and demonstrate how the habitats must remain intact and untouched in order for their survival.
