Willie Smits works at the complicated intersection of humankind, the animal world and our green planet. In his early work as a forester in Indonesia, he came to a deep understanding of that triple relationship, as he watched the growing population of Sulawesi move into (or burn for fuel) forests that are home to the orangutan. These intelligent animals were being <a href="" title="kahramanlar izle ">kahramanlar izle</a> killed for food, traded as pets or simply failing to thrive as their forest home

Thanks for such a great documentary. At age 10 (44 years ago) in Ocho Rios Primary school, Jamaica, the Principal of our school told us that by the time we grew up we would no longer be able to use the beaches that local Jamaicans were used to using. His words have long come true. The beaches are owned by foreigners who owns Hotels etc. The Bauxite Industry has also destroyed large areas of land, and polluted the environment for locals. Documentaries like these would do well in schools where children can see how such actions will eventually degrade their own lives. Are copies of this DVD available for sale?
