    Story

    My name is Friar West.

    I aim to attempt to repeat an unusual marathon canoe journey to promote ICAN - International Conservation Action Network. ICAN evolved from a canoe journey I made in 1977. For the following 28 years we had annual camps involving nationalities from all over the world. Also local schools came for environmental weekends. The activities were as diverse as the people, these even included martial arts. We had support from many world champions and record holders and both the ICAN and canoeing activites have been frequently reported in the media, including television.

    We stopped the camps because we wished to gain A PERMANENT SITE ON WHICH TO OFFER THE PUBLIC THE THINGS WE COULD ONLY DO ONCE A YEAR. Amost everyone could benefit from an ICAN site because any charity could use it to help their cause, nature or not.

    Also erecting and taking down such things as large solar panels plus all the camp facilities was a waste of time. Apart from solar panels we had wildlife pond making, furniture and bird & bat box making from recycled wood. Coastal and Dartmoor walks, plus canoeing and a host of other activities.

    For information on previous ICAN activities and the proposed canoe journey go to www.ican21.org.uk On this journey I hope to contribute to the saving of a rare seal species which WWF originally asked me to do. Help was also offered by Greenpeace.

    ICAN is classed as an unincorporated association. A social enterprise run by volunteers.

    I care about this because I have devoted over 30 years of my life to it and want to make a practical and realistic contribution to the natural environment and help those who feel the same way. I have a 2:1 environmentally related honours degree.

    For those who are able to help financially I would like to give something in return if I can. This could be a DVD of the canoe venture or free admission to any possible future events.

    Thank you, Friar
