National Geographic Special: Rain Forest  (1983)

Wildscreen Film Entry, 1984

The subject of this national geographic special is Costa Rica's lush rain forest. Densely foliated, it is home for some of the worlds most unusual life forms - from poison-arrow frogs to a lizard that runs on water. But home for many of these creatures is disappearing rapidly as tropical rain forests are being cut down to provide timber, farmland, and minerals. Production techniques used in this film include high speed photography and animation.
