Avocado Rise is a non-profit collaborative documentary reporting on the growing environmental problems in the Sierra de Bahoruco.
Sierra de Bahoruco, located in the Dominican Republic and classified as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, is under attack as a result of rising global avocado demand.
Illegal charcoal production and agriculture have been added to the list of enemies of one of the most biodiverse forests in the world.
Avocado Rise aims to shed light on an issue that consumers not only play a part in but can help put an end to.
The documentary was directed by Bernat Mestres and features biologist Yolanda León, research professor of Instituto Tecnológico de Santo Domingo (INTEC) and specialist in coastal marine environments.
