Borneo 3D: 100 Days in the Jungle

Without forests, life on this planet cannot exist. Borneo has the oldest and one of the most bio-diverse rain forests in the world, yet over the last 20 years, these forests have been leveled at a rate unparalleled in human history. Many species are being threatened by this destruction, including the endangered orangutan. So what is the solution?

Borneo 3D will follow the adventures of 10 young ‘action agents’ who will spend 100 days in the jungle working with acclaimed scientist Dr Willie Smits, the local Dayak people and the DeforestACTION project.

They will set up satellite technology to monitor the existing forest, confront illegal logging, replant an entire forest eco-system, rescue and care for orangutans and release them back into the wild.

Willie Smith tells us how we can regrow rainforests in his TED talk! This is quite amazing and gives a little bit of hope...
