Return to Amazon

Airing on PBS, on April 2nd;

Twenty-five years ago, Jean-Michel Cousteau explored this fabled region with his father, the legendary Jacques Cousteau. Since then, an area the size of Texas has been deforested. This is a region of urgency and conflict, where human enterprise and expansion not only compromise the health and ecology of the river and rainforest basin but also inflict consequences on a global scale. Yet, as the Ocean Adventures team witnesses in this intimate exploration, new beacons of hope and sustainability are emerging from the Amazon as the fight for the future of the region unfolds.
