‘Suriname: the lost world’ that fights against climate change

If we look beyond what our eyes see, there are millions of unknown places, unexplored worlds that hide natural wonders. Suriname is a country in South America that makes up the Guiana Shield, the oldest intact tropical forest on the planet. The Movistar + unexplored worlds documentary invites you to discover its magic and its fight against climate change.

Steve Backchall, British naturalist, writer and presenter, is in charge of making us travel to the most remote places through the documentary series Uncharted Worlds of # 0. In the Suriname chapter: the lost world shows the fight against climate change in the most spectacular places on Earth.

Taken by the hand of journalist Steve, we were surprised by this ecological refuge. It is immense, so that we get an idea, only this country is home to 25% of the world’s tropical forests and its rivers transport 15% of the Earth’s fresh waters. In addition, it is a natural center against climate change.

Is there really a fight against climate change?
When we enter the heart of nature, we are really aware of what human actions entail in these types of scenarios. By definition, we are pollutants. Although we try to avoid it by changing our habits, we are polluting.

It is true that there is more awareness about the fight against climate change as time progresses. Or at least, now we name it. Although it is hard to believe, our grandparents were greener than us. Ecology is not a millennial invention, although it is difficult for us to recognize it.

However, it is this generation that is betting on a new model of life that is more respectful of the environment in which we live. An example of this is the increased use of the menstrual cup, instead of other personal hygiene items that are wrapped in plastic.

Through the exploration of Steve Backchall in the documentary Suriname: the lost world, it is possible to recognize incredible virgin places, but, at the same time, we find lethal animals never seen by people. Undoubtedly, these beings can attack the protagonists and end their lives.

However, if we stop to think, we notice that it is certainly the animals that feel attacked. Humans invaded their space. In this way, a question arises: are we human beings necessary in this type of natural areas?
