Join Dr. Lesley de Souza and the locals of Rewa Village as they study the massive Arapaima, one of the largest freshwater fish in the world. If their studies show that these threatened giants of the river migrate into the flooded forests during the rainy season, they might just make a case against the deforestation and mining that jeopardize this beautiful jungle ecosystem and the culture of its inhabitants.
