Saving the Atlantic Rainforest - with Bill Oddie
How many people remember Bill Oddie from the biggest comedy hit of the 70s - the Goodies? Since then he has become one of the UK's favourite wildlife presenters regularly fronting Springwatch and Autumnwatch. This video shows Bill visiting the Atlantic Rainforest in Brazil in 2010.
Bill visited the Reserva Ecológica de Guapi Assu (REGUA) as part of the preparation for the World Land Trust’s exhibit at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2010. He was able to see first hand what the Trust’s partner organisation REGUA has achieved in the past few years, in particular the restoration of rainforests and wetlands.
We've somehow managed to fight the urge to post a clip of Bill being taught to play guitar by Dire Straights legend Mark Knopfler for the BBC programme Play it Again.
