Restoring the Rainforest

An inspiring 60 second long documentary clip of a man from Brazil who took action on a subject that mattered to him - the deforestation that he saw happening all over his country. This short may be just the push that you need to make a New Year's resolution to incorporate the environment more into your daily choices.

Antonio Vincent from Pouso do Rochedo, Brazil, is 83 years old and owns a section of land encompassing 76.6 acres - of which he says every tree that is there he has planted. When he bought his land in 1973 everything was cattle pasture, and all of the natural water sources and waterfalls had run dry. Through his reforestation process with all native plant species the water springs have returned - the land now boasts 8 waterfalls and a healthy ecosystem for wildlife species, including his own family, to thrive. What can you do to make a difference?
