The Orinoco Delta: The Flow of the Tides

Orinoco Delta, The: The Flow of the Tides

The Orinoco Delta is a vast, intricate labyrinth of waterways weaving through a shimmering jungle to carry the waters of the Orinoco River to the Atlantic Ocean. The Orinoco Delta was formed over the course of thousands of years, as the mighty river has deposited millions of tons of sediment into the ocean. During the last century, some 400 square miles have been added to the delta, which continues to extend into the Atlantic at a rate over 100 feet per year. In this eco adventure we feel the flow of the tides, encounter flooded jungles, fish for piranha, and canoe the Orinoco; also we see a Warao Indian shaman ceremony, Warao houses and handicrafts, and hear jungle wisdom from a Warao guide. We learn of roots, trees, saps, leaves, barks, and vines that cure diseases; also we see how to dig canoes and make native handicrafts. 05/10DE JSCA 30 min.
