YEP selected for India
After 10 days of varied activities in the picturesque valley of the Pay d'Enhaut in Switzerland, 16 Young Explorers pack their bags and return to their respective countries around the world. Eight of them have been chosen to attend the Pangaea Expedition in January 2010 as Mike Horn and the exploration sailboat Pangaea sail into Indian territories to explore the biodiversity and the effects on humanity on the Ganges River.
We just learned yesterday that Guy Lacelle was killed in an avalanche during the Bozeman Ice Festival. This tragic news strikes at the heart of the Petzl family, adding to a overwhelmingly sad 2009. Guy has long been a close friend to all of us at Petzl, both in North America and Europe.
