Passionate about using adventurous journeys to help raise awareness and inspire action on urgent environmental challenges, Kate Rawles’s most recent ‘adventure plus’ involved cycling the length of South America, from the Pacific Ocean to rainforests and salt flats, on a bamboo bike she built herself.

As she reached the ‘end of the world’, she realised that to tackle biodiversity loss we all have a role to play.
