One of the most important land ecosystems for mitigating the effects of climate change, the Amazon moderates weather patterns locally and globally, carries 20 percent of the planetв’s fresh water to the ocean and harbors more than 30 percent of all species in the world. Experts believe that at the current rate of destruction, the Amazon will be consumed in 40 years. A compelling call to action, Anthem for the Amazon is a collaboration of the Amazon Aid Foundation and Rhythm of the Universe. Students, artists, and scientists from over 90 countries united to create this music video project to educate a global audience about the importance of the Amazon. Directed by Emir Cerman. Produced by Sarah duPont. An Amazon Aid Foundation and Rhythm of the Universe production.
Introduced by Sarah duPont, producer.
