Amazon Adventure

Amazon Adventure


Rated: G


Amazon Adventure tells the epic, true story of explorer Henry Bates' fascinating 11-year journey through the visually stunning and biodiverse Amazon rainforest in the 1850's. 

As in any great detective story, audiences will uncover the compelling clues that lead Bates to his major discovery: the phenomenon of mimicry, whereby certain animals adopt the look of others in order to deceive predators and gain an advantage to survive. 

Little known to the public, Bates made other crucial contributions to biology as well, identifying 8,000 species new to science and most importantly, putting forward the first-ever case for the creation of a new species -- which Charles Darwin called the "beautiful proof" for Natural Selection. 

Discover mind-boggling examples of camouflage, mimicry and be inspired by Bates' endless curiosity and determination to explore the wilds of nature!
