"By piecing together a complex ecological puzzle, biologist Willie Smits has found a way to re-grow clearcut rainforest in Borneo, saving local orangutans -- and creating a thrilling blueprint for restoring fragile ecosystems." (TED)
This talk of Willie Smits opens the field for what is possible, if good will, money and expertise meet. This blueprint is not just about restoring rainforest but also about restoring the local climate. It is fascinating to see how a whole ecosystem can be rebuilt little by little.
