“I'm in this weird reality where I'm using my voice and my status as a woman traveling alone on a motorcycle as a way to talk about conservation to people who otherwise might not care or listen,” says Janell Kaz. “So it's kind of a weird realm but at the same time it's one of my favorite bridges that I've ever built is between this thriving motorcycle community worldwide and wildlife conservation.”


For the past five years, Janelle has traveled on her motorcycle fighting against the worldwide problem of wildlife trafficking. This journey has brought her from the jungles of Southeast Asia to the mountains of Colombia. Although this massive problem can be overwhelming at times, Janelle has found ways to stay positive.


This past summer, Duct Tape Then Beer filmmaker, Isaiah Branch-Boyle was looking for hope and was inspired by Janelle’s positivity. So he traveled to Colombia and spent a week with Janelle in the northeastern mountains of Colombia to learn more about wildlife trafficking and to find ways we can all find hope in the darkness.
