Daniel Eggington and the Darien Gap Project

Great to hear from Hennessy user Daniel Eggington, who'll be taking the Jungle Explorer Zip on his latest expedition, The Darien Gap Project.  Here are his own words describing his  plans: 

“The main aim of my expedition is to raise awareness for conservation and human rights.  The location is a pristine habitat of primary rainforest.   I will be trekking through the gap from Colombia to Panama along the Pacific coast,  also known as Colombias Choco department.  

The Darien Gap is a gap in the Pan American highway which is the longest road in the world.  The jungle itself is dense and hostile from countless numbers of dangerous animals and a growing number of illegal armed groups, the most notorious bing the FARC rebels who have now disbanded and formed a political party.  The once smaller armed groups are now fighting for control of the illegal businesses the FARC once had which has created a power vacuum and people trying to rise to the top of it.   

Why I am doing this is simply because I love adventure and I hope to raise awareness for the indigenous communities neglected or affected by the issues in the region.  Another reason is to raise awareness of the biodiversity of the region in a hope the organisations trying to reduce deforestation and increase biological diversity will keep it forefront of their minds.
