Summary:
This program demonstrates how the preservation of the rainforest is vital to the survival of our planet. The rainforest provides a rich diversity of plant and animal life, and influences planetary weather systems, but it has been systematically destroyed for years by commercial logging, cattle ranching and agriculture. Scientist Tom Stone uses satellites to study the vegetation in the Amazon Basin and observes how rapidly the rainforest is being cleared. Since problems of population growth and financial pressures have forced indigenous cultures and local companies to deplete rainforest resources, strategies suggested to preserve it include the creation of parks and wildlife reserves, education for local populations and more funding for family planning. Part of The Earth at Risk Environmental Video Series that examines the threats facing Earth and the environment.

Only available in the US.
