In 1950, about 15 percent of the Earth’s land surface was covered by rainforest. It’s impossible to capture on film, to describe in phrases, or to elucidate to those that have never had the awe-inspiring experience of standing within the heart of a primary rainforest. The wonder, majesty, and timelessness of a main rainforest are indescribable. The Indians of the rainforest use over 2,000. One-fifth of the world’s fresh water is in the Amazon Basin.
