The Stamford Museum & Nature Center is proud to partner with the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival to bring some of its Festival's films to Stamford. The Wildlife Conservation Film Festival (WCFF) is a unique conservation, cultural, and education event that uses film media to promote global biodiversity. There will be a Q & A discussion after each of the films moderated by Christopher Gervais, Founder and CEO of WCFF. The first film, Amazon Alive: Jungle of the Mind, tells the story of the enormity and complexity of the Amazon Rainforest using key animals such as jaguar, leaf-cutting ant, giant otters, fresh-water stingray and its biodiversity. The forest took millions of years to evolve to what is today.(45 minutes). The second film, Meet the Sloths, takes place in a sleepy corner of Costa Rica on the Caribbean coast near the Panama border is a peculiar sanctuary. The only one in the world devoted to saving injured and orphaned sloths. Meet the sloths is a humorous documentary following a handful of resident sloths over the course of a year. (50 minutes)
