I Bought a Rainforest

Ho comprato una foresta pluviale

The thirty-year-old Jacob Andrén donated to campaigns to save the rainforests. Encouraged by their teachers, and with money earned from flea market sales, the elementary school children bought a small plot of land, as certified by an official receipt. Some 20 years on, Andrén was curious to find out what happened to that real estate: is it still there and if so, where is it? On discovering that his piece of the rainforest is in Costa Rica, Andrén journeys to the Central American island in search of his trees and an answer to questions about the environment.<%YOUTUBE=ZgfV19kgiGo%>
