Description
For the past 12 years, Club NĂ¡utico Escualo (Escualo = Shark), a youth kayak club in the remote Patagonian town of Cochrane, Chile has taught kids between the ages of 4 and 18 to kayak on the emerald waters of the nearby Baker River. In the process, the club has fostered integrity, community, and love for the environment. Now the Baker is threatened by the construction of two mega dams that would destroy the river and one of the last four-great wildernesses on earth, while forever altering the town of Cochrane and the lives of the Escualos.
