Pioneer Studios spent 31 days filming in the rainforest of Panama to capture both research and wildlife stories unknown to the general public. All the material was shot in 4k UHD and subjects ranged from Monkeys and frogs to ants and birds.

The biodiversity of the Panamanian rainforest is unparalleled in its complexity, and researchers are only beginning to unravel its vast ecological mysteries. Join the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute as they work to understand and conserve the abundance of this immense natural treasure.
