FOREST KEEPERS
2020
FOREST KEEPERS is the story of rewilding in South America, an extraordinary continent which holds over 40% of the Earth’s biodiversity, as well as a quarter of its forests.

By recognizing the importance of every species of flora and fauna as a whole, humans - ecologists, biologists and environmental visionaries - and unique animals – grazers, seed dispensers and top predators - work in tandem to rebuild and repopulate their natural habitats.
