Africa's Green Heart takes us from the slums and diamond pits of Sierra Leone to the depths of the Congo Basin. Dramatic footage of bushmeat hunters and life on Congo riverboats contrasts with rare gorilla behaviour and moving interviews with forest communities, loggers and conservationists.
This is the first in a trilogy of films about tropical forests and the people and wildlife who depend on them, by independent filmmaker Steve Taylor. Tropical rainforests are home to more than half the worId's species and play a crucial role in maintaining the health of our planet. Steve Taylor has travelled across Africa, Amazonia and Borneo to explore first-hand the complex issues of deforestation. Gorillas in Africa, river dolphins in Peru, orangutans in Borneo all feature, along with forest-dwelling people--the traditional custodians of the forest.
