Man with a monkey

Description: 

This film tells the epic, true story of explorer Henry Bates’ fascinating 11 year journey through the visually stunning and biodiverse Amazon rainforest. Audiences will be wowed by the mind-boggling examples of camouflage and mimicry and inspired by Bates’ endless curiosity and determination to explore the wilds of nature from the time he was a young boy.

Little known to the public, Bates made other crucial contributions to biology: identifying 8,000 species new to science and most importantly, putting forth the first ever case for the creation of a new species, which Charles Darwin called the “beautiful proof” for natural selection.
