Team AR in the desert
Atlantic Rising has left the desert and arrived in Brazil.
The West African stage of our adventure is now complete. And we have exciting news to report from Brazil - the giant message in a bottle, containing 1,000s of letters written by school children, has now been found. We launched the capsule into the ocean from a containership five weeks ago as part of an education project teaching students about ocean currents. All the latest news here.
On our website are photos of our school visits, video interviews with climate change experts, the latest articles we have been writing for the Ecologist and radio recordings for the BBC. You can also watch Tim being grilled by students in Brighton for BBC school report.
We are now travelling northwards up the east coast of the Americas to Canada.
To find out if we are still talking to each other, have managed to avoid dengue fever or successfully navigated across the Amazon please keep looking at the website. You can also follow the progress of Atlantic Rising on Twitter and Facebook.
Please forward this to anyone you think might be interested in our environmental education project - geography teachers, environmentalists or armchair explorers.
Thank you very much for your support.
Lynn, Tim and Will
