This new illustrated animation from The Path of the Anacondas Initiative explores how the Amazon Rainforest regulates our climate and supports life on Earth.
The film emphasises that our planet is a living, self regulating organism of which we are all part. It argues that to thrive, we must protect the integrity and resilience of the whole Earth.
To do this, the film suggests the creation of a vast ‘eco-cultural mosaic’ in the north of the Amazon. This would be protected from exploitation and safeguarded by the indigenous inhabitants of the forest, who have lived in balance with the Amazon for millennia.
