Help Ecuador’s Rivers AND Win Great Prizes Doing So

Small World Adventures has teamed up with the Ecuadorian Rivers Institute (ERI) to take a stand and do something to protect Ecuador’s wonderful rivers and the incredible rainforests they flow through. For all the whitewater enthusiasts who come to Ecuador, the country is, sadly, lacking a strong community fighting for the very waters we love to paddle on.

Ecuador’s rivers are facing a number of threats right now from mining, oil, and dams (and all the roads and other development associated with these activities). The ERI is the only conservation group in Ecuador working exclusively on protecting Ecuador’s rivers, and we need your help to support the ERI! Not only is the ERI fighting illegal mining practices and illegal road building, but they are also working to get river corridors protected and to get the government to recognize the value in protecting some of its natural treasures rather than exploiting any and all resources in a destructive manner.

So, in an effort to raise much-needed money for the ERI, Small World Adventures is tying ERI donations to lottery entries for our annual summer gear giveaway! Anyone can still get 1 entry for “free” here: win a kayaking trip to Ecuador, South America

But if you want to help the ERI, you’ll also be helping your odds of winning. This year, for every $5 you donate to the ERI, you’ll get 1 extra entry into the summer gear giveaway lottery. So a $50 donation will get you 10 extra entries.

If you want your donation to count towards your chances to win gear, be sure to use the SWA/ERI donate button which you can find here: win a kayaking trip to Ecuador, South America

If you’ve ever paddled in Ecuador, or plan to in the future, why not help out the incredible rivers there? And who knows, maybe you’ll be greatly rewarded for your donation! We are giving out prizes every 2 weeks between May 1st and October 31st and you can win awesome gear and a trip in Ecuador from: Small World Adventures, Jackson Kayaks, Werner Paddles, Immersion Research, Sweet Protection, Snap Dragon, Smith, Sea to Summit, Kayak Session, Forge Motion Pictures, and Colorado Kayak Supply.

SWA and ERI thank you for your support.
