There are more species of fish in the Amazon than in the entire Atlantic Ocean. Fabien Cousteau, grandson of Jacques Cousteau, tells us more about why the Amazon is such an important part of the Earth’s ecosystem, and whether we can do anything to save it. The Cousteau family’s work in the Amazon is the subject of a new PBS documentary, ”Return the Amazon.”
Event: “Return to the Amazon” airs on Channel Thirteen/WNET New York
