Hey Whitewater People,
Ecuador's government and a private construction company are trying to dam the Piatua River. We've teamed up with the Ecuadorian Rivers Institute and we are trying to stop them. The ERI is fighting the dam in the courts because we believe the permits were issued without following Ecuadorian law, and we are trying to raise money to fund the defense of the river. We are running a fundraiser and gear giveaway--so you donate to a great cause and get chances to win awesome whitewater gear, including a trip to Ecuador with Small World Adventures, a Werner paddle, Jackson Kayak, Kokatat PFD and shorty, Snap Dragon spray skirts, Watershed dry bag from AS Watersports and subscriptions to Kayak Session Magazine.

And please help us spread the word, the more people who get involved the better.
Thanks for your help!
