National Geographic Live: I Bought a Rainforest
Photo by Charlie Hamilton James

A childhood obsession with kingfishers and otters marked the beginning of Charlie Hamilton James’ lifelong appreciation for the brilliance of nature. As a wildlife documentarian, passionate conservationist, and award-winning photojournalist, Hamilton James has spent the last 20 years working to protect the rainforest habitat of Peru’s Manu National Park.

In an effort to truly understand the real Amazon, he has traveled from the east coast of Brazil to the dense rainforest of Peru, lived with and hunted with the indigenous people, and purchased 100 acres of rainforest (only to learn afterward that it happened to include an illegal coca plantation).

The critically acclaimed photojournalist will recount his unlikely journey in the Peruvian rainforest.
