The cloud forests of El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, high in the remote Sierra Madre de Chiapas mountains in Mexico, are one of the most magical places on earth. An ancient forest that is home for giant trees, quetzals, horned guans and a world of wildlife found nowhere else in the country. And yet, even here, we find an ecosystem fighting for survival.


Directed by Pierangelo Pirak and Jaime Rojo. Produced by Matt Walker and BBC Earth. Special Guest Alexandra Garcia. Presented with the support of the Reva and David Logan Foundation.
