Rainforests for the Future

Wildlife documentary. The Central African state of Gabon is devoted to wildlife conservation. Over ten percent of the country's rainforest is protected in a series of new national parks, home to abundant wildlife including elephants, gorillas, chimps and mandrills. Along the unspoilt coastline forest meets the beach and hippos are seen wallowing in the surf. It's an uplifting story of sensitive development, and a reminder of primeval Africa as it would have appeared to the first explorers.
