AdventuressesPoster
Jacki Hill-Murphy MA FRGS is an explorer, teacher, film maker and speaker who has experienced many of the most remote and inhospitable places on earth, recording and filming her memorable experiences. For the last 5 years, she has recreating the journeys of some of the most amazing unsung female adventuresses in history, ‘Pioneers with Purpose’ whose courage and grit should be held in the highest esteem.

Jacki has recently returned from her latest expedition - the length of the Amazon River, from source to the sea, in the footsteps of Isabella Godin and the first known explorers of the region. She has been documenting the river and its environment, recording the impact and destruction our modern age has made on it since the 18th century. Different topics will have been studied along the way which will culminate in a book that will be a fascinating document of the Amazon River in 2016 contributed to by all team makers who are a scientist, a doctor, an explorer and a photographer and author.
