    FAR TO THE NORTH, IN THE LUSH FOREST OF BRAZIL'S
    NORTHMOST REGION,THE SAME COMFORTS
    AWAIT THE TRAVELER AT THE FAMOUS HOTEL
    TROPICALE IN MANAUS, A PLACE WHERE THE MYSTERIOUS
    WORLD OF THE AMAZON WAITS JUST BEYOND THE GATE........
    THE AMAZON FOREST, WHICH BLANKETS 40% OF BRAZIL'S
    TERRITORY, IS MORE THAN JUST AN EXOTIC TRAVEL DESTINATION.
    IT PLAYS A VITAL ROLE IN THE HEALTH OF OUR PLANET.
    ITS GREENERY GENERATES 50%
    OF THE WORLD'S SUPPLY OF OXYGEN, AND THE LIVING
    JUNGLE HELPS MAINTAIN THE CRITICAL BALANCE OF
    GASSES IN THE EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE.
    THIS TROPICAL RAIN FOREST IS THE HOME TO MORE THAN
    18OO SPECIES OF BIRDS AND SEVERAL HUNDRED
    SPECIES OF MAMMALS.
    AND MORE THAN 1500 SPECIES OF AQUATIC CREATURES fish from furnas?
    INHABIT ITS COUNTLESS MILES OF WATERWAYS.
    TO MEN TRYING TO CONQUER THE JUNGLE
    THE RAIN FOREST APPEARS ALMOST INDUSTRUCTIBLE--
    BUT THIS OVERWHELMING FOREST
    IS ACTUALLY A MOST DELICATE AND FRAGILE ECO-SYSTEM. .........
    THE LIFE OF THE FOREST IS PROTECTED BY THE HEAVY
    LEAFY CANOPY, AND THE DENSE MAT OF ROOTS BELOW.
    THESE ROOTS ARE ALL THAT HOLDS THE THIN LAYER OF SOIL tilt down
    THAT NOURISHES AND HOLDS THE JUNGLE.
    WHEN LARGE SECTIONS OF FOREST ARE DESTROYED FOR SHORT
    TERM AGRICULTURE OR GRAZING, THE THIN LAYER OF TOP SOIL
    WASHES AWAY IN THE FREQUENT RAINS,
    LEAVING ONLY BARREN ROCK.
    AND THOUGH THE JUNGLE IS SO LARGE THAT IT SEEMS LIKE
    A LIMITESS RESOURCE, THOUSANDS OF ACRES ARE BEING
    LOST THIS WAY EVERY DAY.
    THE THREAT TO THIS VAST ECO-SYSTEM PLACES EVERY SPECIES
    THAT LIVES HERE IN JEOPARDY, AND
    BY IT'S EFFECT ON THE WORLDS CLIMATE AND THE VERY AIR WE BREATHE,
    JUST MAY BE A THREAT TO LIFE ON EARTH ITSELF!
    AS MORE AND MORE PEOPLE BECOME AWARE OF
    THE FRAGILE BEAUTY OF THIS LARGEST OF ALL JUNGLES,
    THERE APPEARS A NEW HOPE THAT THE
    UNRIVALED PAGEANT OF RARE ANIMALS,
    BRILLIANT BIRDS, AND STRANGE CREATURES
    THAT MAKE THEIR HOMES AMONG THESE EXOTIC PLANTS
    WILL INDEED CONTINUE..........
    DESPITE THE STAGGERING SIZE OF THE JUNGLE,
    ONLY ABOUT 5% OF BRAZIL'S TOTAL POPULATION
    LIVES IN THE AMAZON REGION. OF THE ORIGINAL INHABITANTS,
    THE INDIANS OF THE FOREST, ONLY A FEW THOUSAND REMAIN.
    ALTHOUGH THEY ARE NOW PROTECTED BY A GOVERNMENT
    AGENCY, INCURSIONS INTO THE FOREST, DISEASE,
    AND OUTRIGHT SLAUGHTER HAVE MADE THEIR
    CONTINUED EXISTENCE HERE PROBLEMATIC.
    THE DESTRUCTION OF THE FOREST WOULD MEAN
    NOT ONLY THE LOSS OF AN ECO-SYSTEM, BUT THE LOSS
    OF THE HOME FOR THE PEOPLE WHO
    HAVE LIVED HERE FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
