Uncontacted Tribes

http://www.survivalinternational.org/films/uncontacted-intro

It's crazy to me how people go ahead with development plans in territories that are undeveloped with disregard to the off grid communities living in these areas. Deforestation not only destroys the habitats of the plants and animals in them, but also is a risk to the people living here, like an example from this video talks about how the machinery is actually hurting or killing people, along with the new diseases spread to these isolated people. I think the companies should be held accountable for the damage they've caused by not mapping out these areas to make sure they are not destroying necessities and communities.
