Finding Balance                        9Min.

Poverty and rapid population growth have driven
the destruction of almost 90 percent of
Madagascar’s rainforest, home to thousands of
plant and animal species found nowhere else on
earth. Finding Balance journeys to the edge of a
rapidly disappearing world, where population
growth continues to fuel the cycle of poverty and
deforestation. Rare interviews with local women
reveal their desire to have fewer children and
underscore the critical need for family planning
services in remote areas. This short
documentary brings the links between population
growth and environmental destruction into sharp
focus – and explores what one innovative local
organization is doing about it.
