Films for Biodiversity - "Voices of the Chichinautzin" (Film and discussion panel)
This is the story of indigenous communities living south of Mexico City, risking their lives to protect the forests and mountains against the relentless expansion of the capital city.

These communities are located in the Chichinautzin biological corridor connecting two naturally protected areas. This is an area of very high biodiversity and a place of great scientific importance. However, faced with intense development pressures it is proving difficult to balance conservation of the biodiversity, with secure livelihoods for the local communities and seemly insatiable demands of the urban population."
