Join Joseph as he ships out on a Peruvian Amazon journey from the jungle town of Iquitos, Peru and makes his way through one of the world's wonders. One-fifth of the world's water and oxygen are produced in the Amazon Rainforest and thousands of species of birds, fish, reptiles, mammals and plants as well as hundreds of thousands of people thrive there. With all the pressures from logging and mining interests, it's also a wonder that this natural world still exists. Joseph sets out on a discovery that includes daybreak bird watching, night safaris in search of caimans, piranha fishing, canoeing the Amazon's tributaries, swimming with pink dolphins and close encounters with the "riverinos" - the people of the river. In the hopes that eco-tourism can slow the flow of the region's demise, Joseph embarks on an adventure that is fast becoming extinct. A visit to the Amazon is a reminder of from whence we've come, what we've lost and the need to protect and preserve what is left. Experiencing it is a thrill.
