Jungle of the Red Spirit (part 4/5)

Bookmark and Share

This is a journey through the Borneo rainforest , a jungle in which none of the people expected to live too long, where even plants are fearsome predators.

This chapter takes us into the protected areas of the northeast end of the Borneo island to show the functioning of this ecosystem. We'll observe the morphology of this great body that houses both a huge amount of insects and large animals. We will also know the social customs of the monkeys called nĂ¡sicos and we can see the activity of the hairy Sumatran rhino. Watch the sophisticated trap that carnivorous plants produce and enjoy a sample of the wide variety of orchids that the rainforest of Borneo houses.

But the real protagonist is the red orangutan ,named by the locals as "monkey man". We will approach the lives of these endangered primates and discover the efforts made in the Sepilok Forest Reserve to taking care of the baby monkeys, affected by the deterioration of the jungle by the timber industry .

"It is not a question of saying we should be doing all that is possible to save our oceans, but rather that we must do all that is possible. If the oceans die, we die." - Captain Paul Watson, Sea Shepherd founder

Why Just One? Saving the world's last dinosaur, the sea turtle. A documentary made by Sea Shepherd

Why just one? That questions cuts to the heart of every effort that aims to keep sea turtles swimming in Earth's oceans. It's a deceptively simple question, but one that defies simple answers.

This documentary highlights what we are doing for the turtles, what we can do for turtles, and what we must do for the turtles.
