Hi, I'm an jungle expedition leader who recovers fallen LEO satellites and other equipment in the Amazon Rainforest in very remote areas! Further I am also a jungle survival instructor and expedition leader for all sorts of different expeditions. ...
ExpeditionForces exists out of group of adventures with mostly a military (including special forces) or indigenous back ground (in some cases both). We are involved in retrieval, search & salvage expeditions in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. We also organize Jungle survival courses, expeditions leadership courses, in-Country TV Production Fixer, Scientific expeditions and adventure travel expeditions.
Brazilian soldiers generally have to retire around the age of 32 without any sort of real pension or help. Many of these men who used to spent most of their days in the rainforest have a hard time adjusting back to city life and finding any sort of sustainable income. Many end up jobless and homeless or working in factories where they get depressed. In the worst cases they end up working for drug cartels. We have made it our mission to hire these soldiers and provide jobs where they can still spend the majority of their time in the rainforest doing what they love and do best: Survive! Further we also hire many indigenous people who have an immense knowledge of the rainforest and its wildlife and who are incredible assets for our jungle survival trips and expeditions.
