Enough traipsing through the Amazon after ethnobotanically edified indigenous peoples, the narrator spellbound by the bark of howler monkeys. That wasn't going to pique anyone's attention.


Injecting a little levity in the otherwise dull and often dogged approach to sustainability storytelling.


The viral video has garnered more than five million plus views, gobs of attention for the Rainforest Alliance and awards including a Bronze Lion at Cannes, Best Nonprofit Video of 2012, an Epica Gold Award for public interest and one of the TED: Ads Worth Spreading.
