Amazonie, Ultime Frontiere (Amazon: The Final Frontier)

Description: The Amazon is considered the “lungs” of the world and Amazon River runs through it. With deforestation, fires and overgrazing, the Amazon is being destroyed. But the government of Brazil has taken the lead on protecting this vast resource. Government agencies are working together with local communities to develop an effective model of resource protection. One that includes new technologies and putting these tools in the hands of the local people. And it ultimately protects water!
