NOW PLAYING—Amazon Adventure 3D tells the epic, true story of explorer Henry Bates' fascinating 11-year journey through the visually stunning and biodiverse Amazon rainforest as a young man who risks his life for science in the 1850's.
Filmed on location in the lush Amazon region, Amazon Adventure 3D is a compelling detective story of peril, perseverance and, ultimately, success. Join Henry Bates as he unearths clues leading to his major discovery of the phenomenon of mimicry—where certain animals adopt the look of others to help them deceive predators and gain an advantage to survive.
Little known to the public, Bates made other crucial contributions to biology: identifying 8,000 species new to science and most importantly, putting forth the first ever case for the creation of a new species, which Charles Darwin called the "beautiful proof" for natural selection.
Audiences will be wowed by the mind-boggling examples of camouflage and mimicry and inspired by Bates' endless curiosity and determination to explore the wilds of nature from the time he was a young boy. Runtime: 45 mins.
