Protecting the Amazon | Tribes on the Edge: Celine Cousteau Presents Her Documentary

Join us as Céline Cousteau presents an exclusive screening of her new film and impact campaign, Tribes on the Edge. It is estimated that the Amazon produces 20% of the world’s oxygen, and releases 55 gallons of water into the Atlantic Ocean every second. With no deforestation, mining, or poaching permitted on indigenous land, the last few tribes living there are the frontline guardians of an ecosystem crucial for life all over the world. This raw and evocative documentary reveals the daily struggles of the last few remaining tribes who find themselves fighting for survival in the Amazon. Discover the importance of protecting this invaluable area of our planet, hear the deeply moving stories of the indigenous peoples who safe guard it on our behalf, and learn some of the simple things that you can do to help. 

Céline Cousteau—filmmaker, environmentalist, and granddaughter of the legendary Jacques Cousteau—has spent the past 5 years respectfully documenting, filming, and curating the story of all the indigenous peoples of the Javari to help them tell their story to the world.
