Makaya: Sacred Forest

Posted: 9 March 2001

The great coastal forest that once stretched unbroken from Mozambique to northern Kenya has been reduced to scattered patches. The film shows that its survival in Kenya owes much to one people's spiritual bond with the forest.

And as scientists discover new plant species that may one day benefit farming and medicine, they are finding that the people living in the forest are already skilled in using their jungle as a pharmacy and food cupboard.
