Like most things these days, one image on a certain event can inspire more action and intrigue than a few hundred words. Case in point: the few remaining uncontacted tribes within the Amazon rainforest. In an effort to protect these tribes from encroachments upon the rainforest’s natural resources, one public employee takes to the tree tops to document these natives’ existence–and value–to Brazilian officials. The line may be blurred between inquiry and exploitation, but should the humanity and rich anthropological heritage of the Amazon not be explained in full to those seeking to capitalize on it, illegal logging might by the name of the game for the foreseeable future.
