Alamos Wildlands Alliance

From Adam Hannuksela, Director of Research for the The Alamos Wildlands Alliance

"We conduct research, environmental education, and conservation in a threatened ecosystem in northern Mexico. We also run the Navopatia Field Station, a small filed camp in a remote area of the state. It is a unique habitat where the desert meets the Sea of Cortez. Since 2007 we have been using the NuCanoe in our fleet of kayaks. We use them to carry out aquatic bird surveys, as transportation to study sites, with some of our education programs, and for all around fun. They have exceeded all of our expectations. The stability allows us to introduce new people (both young and old) to kayaking and the water, as well as bring all of the necessary equipment needed for our scientific work. The durability of NuCanoe is also crucial to the work we do. Time and time again the NuCanoe proves almost indestructible to the shells, mangroves, the occasional fisherman, and hordes of kids that enjoy them. These are the most versatile and among the highest quality watercraft we have had the pleasure of using. We look forward to many more years of dependable use and the addition of more NuCanoe boats to our fleet."
