Eternal Amazon investigates successful initiatives that make sustainable use of the rainforest. Farming, fishing, ranching, mining, energy, tourism, logging, and industrial activities, together with the presence of its indigenous people, are all on the rainforest agenda and explored in this documentary. It portrays the daily lives of the forest people as the guardians of this great natural heritage that could last into eternity, if properly managed. The protagonists of sustainable initiatives, engaged in discussions with leading specialists in the environment, public policy and economics, work to find ways to use natural resources with minimal harmful impact.
