Breaking News – Earthrace is Back! New Zealanders for Biofuel, start again…

{EDITOR’S NOTE – You’ll recall when Bajan Reporter began, we tracked the crew as they sought to circumnavigate the planet, with Barbados as a pit-stop, using only bio-fuel as opposed to traditionally chemical forms of diesel… It seems they’re getting ready to make another go of it, have no idea if Barbados is included this time around, but we can only wish them the very best! Here’s their Captain on the latest efforts…}

I hope you’ll find this first issue of ‘My Backyard‘ (CLICK FOR FREE PDF) a good read.

Inside our magazine, you’ll find out what the Earthrace teams have been up to over the past twelve months and what their focus is for the coming year. There are some great photos from our Junior Activists, and information about some of the other groups we’re pleased to support.

In the meantime, I feel humbled by the incredibly strong core crew of people that are already on board with Earthrace Conservation, working every day for no money, growing our chapters and taking action against everything from ocean pollution, illegal fishing and hunting and shark finning, to seal culls, the preservation of endangered species and the continuing captivity of marine mammals for profit.

They are all responsible for keeping the name of Earthrace out there, which in turn is attracting thousands of other amazing volunteers all over the world willing to give up their time and expertise to help too.

2013 will be a brilliant year when we collectively make some seriously good stuff happen. I hope you’ll feel able to continue to support us in whatever ways you can.

Let’s get ready for some action!
