1. The Tambopata-Madre de Dios region of Peru is the Amazon rainforest's foremost tourism destination, receiving 60,000+ tourists who pop over from Cusco to experience the jungle each year. Giles Crosse, a sustainability journalist, interviews Christopher Kirkby (PhD), a conservation biologist working here since 1997 with expertise in environmental economics, about some of the challenges and benefits of ecotourism in the region. Thanks to Leo Plunkett at Relevant Films (http://www.relevantfilms.co.uk) for taking the time to put this together.
