The status of the rainforests has been imparted to most of the world, and even young children are aware that the conservation of these ecosystems is all-important. However, as environmentalists and politicians alike make headlines regarding ecological issues, the residents of Amazonia are all but forgotten. The burden of the struggle for existence falls on the shoulders of the women, who must try to better their lot despite large-scale enroachment of their lands. Their resiliency and strength of character are demonstrated in Amazon Sisters, as they rise to daily challenges in a diminishing environment.
