Overview

Chico Mendes has become synonymous with the global fight to save the rain forest...he learned the craft of tapping rubber and with it the delicate balance of the land.

Mendes took on rubber barons and cattle ranchers in a fight to create the first union of forest workers. Later he worked to save the forest itself. One way or another, Mendes gained more prominence than was healthy. He was killed in 1988, an event that sparked international intrigue.
