Interactive video lesson plan for: I Bought a Rain Forest, Part 2 | Nat Geo Live

Activity overview:

In part two, Charlie Hamilton James begins to realize that conservation is a bourgeois concept. He goes to live with more illegal loggers, travels to Brazil to live with people who are burning down the rain forest for farm land, and then comes back to his plot of rain forest with an idea that could be one small step in the right direction to help both the illegal logger on his property and the rain forest.

In an effort to help protect Peru's Manú National Park from illegal logging, National Geographic photographer Charlie Hamilton James bought a section of rain forest on the edge of the park. What would transpire after this purchase would lead him on a quest for truth to better understand the people behind the Amazon's destruction.
