1904 was another turning point for us i got on in rwanda he witnessed the aftermath of the genocide it was carnage millions of displaced people bodies heaped by the side of the road the stark evidence of what humans are capable of doing to another made him sick psychologically physically. so i got to return to his parents abandoned farm in the brazilian rain forest to his horror little remained of the lush landscape he'd left behind. the trees e remembered were almost completely gone. his wife nearly a proposed to be able to land and replant the forest the couple founded the instituto terra. and with the help of experts and local workers they replanted nearly 3000000 trees over the next 15 years.
the restored forests include 290 different species while over 170 bird species of returned along with pumas and leopards. the land made a miraculous recovery. and sowed in south gado. but the rain forest is burning almost 500000 hectares were destroyed in august 29th deemed. many deliberately ignited to clear the forest for farming and cattle ranching.

about 183 groups of indian m and so on and if they were never contact never they are ours from 2000 years before 5000 years before they are in the dungeon to lose their forest to lose their way of life to be destroyed and discovered to be this is really a major disaster. god knows spend several months of the year in brazil. but they have no intention of returning for good. he spent 11 years. away from brazil because it was not possible go back. dick that the ship was that it had a lot of friends of what that process innate in brazil and he's staying friends in
