A solar powered boat in the Amazon

IdeaSpies solar powered boat

This new boat will be used by the Achuar people within their territory of Ecuador and Peru which remains roadless and pristine. Walking and canoes that use gasoline are the main means of transportation for the Achuar. But their territory has a vast network of rivers and tributaries, and plenty of sun, meaning that an environmentally-friendly alternative to the gas boats – which do not reflect the Achuar’s commitment to protect their rainforest home – is now possible. https://www.pachamama.org/news/the-achuar-will-have-a-network-of-boats-and-solar-recharge-stations-in-their-rivers
