Children of the Amazon

Screen Shot 2013-10-23 at 4.42.01 PMBased on a documentary which aired on PBS, this web site tells the story of deforestation in Brazil and the work of indigenous Surui tribes to monitor and resist illegal logging. The site integrates video clips and blog posts, and documents Google’s ongoing work in the Amazon.

I assisted the film’s director with writing the grant proposal to ITVS, which funded the site via an Project 360 grant in 2009. I then served as web producer on the project, managing a programmer and a graphic designer.

The site is bilingual English / Portuguese.  Google Earth Outreach was a partner in its development.
