Yasuni: A rainforest hotspot in jeopardy

More great programming from our local Blip.tv user, "crazyant". This article comes right from the original post:

I took this video during a trip to Ecuador this past December/January. It includes footage of some of the amazing wildlife there, as well as interviews with Dr. Kelly Swing and Dr. Jaime Guerra - both of whom have worked in rainforest science and conservation for many years. If you are interested in the issues of rainforests, indigenous people and oil production, check out www.saveamericasforests.org and www.findingspecies.org for more detailed info. I have to admit these were my first filmed interviews, and I hadn't yet learned not to talk while interviewing someone in "talking head" style (whoops, embarrassing!). The film also includes some creative commons sampling plus 1.0 liscensed sounds/music by Kerri and Gurdonark. [Cambridge on Blip]
