Save the rain forests! The plea has been seen and heard everywhere. But virtually all attention has focused only on the Amazon and rain forests are part of many areas of the tropical world where they are disappearing at rates even more critically dangerous than the Amazon. Until now, no documentary has presented a global examination of this critical global question. This documentary circles the planet in search of answers. Prime focus is on the human and economic dimensions. Included are tribal people in remote forests, new settlers, squatters, farmers, loggers, government, industry and environmental leaders. A primetime PBS telecast, CAN TROPICAL RAINFORESTS BE SAVED? depicts why the forests are important, why they are vanishing, who is responsible, the human and environmental results, the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of protection measures, and what else can be done to save them. Filmed in rain forested countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America: Brazil, Cameroon, Costa Rica, Ghana, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Rwanda, Thailand--and in Japan, the world's largest importer of tropical rainforest wood.
