The tropical rain forests of the world are home to nearly half the animal species on earth and contain some of the most fascinating examples of natural adaptation ever seen. This classic program takes viewers into the rain forests of Costa Rica to witness a richly varied habitat under threat from human encroachment. Here, a basilisk lizard walks on water, howler monkeys bask in the sun, and leaf-cutting ants carry sections of foliage many times their weight into underground fungus gardens. Still provocative after a quarter century, the film sounds an eloquent warning about the natural wonders we stand to lose if industry and agriculture continue to take precedence over rain forest protection.
