Duration: 0:26:46

Description: One of the world's most diverse forests, the Mata Atlantica once covered Brazil's southeastern coast for over a thousand miles and still blankets the steep hills of R?o de Janeiro. Now less than 10% remains, much of it in protected parks. Within the Mata, runaway slaves established their villages, some of which persist and can only be reached by boat.
