Inside the Magical Cloud Forest that Could Soon Disappear

This cloud forest in Mexico is one of the wettest places in the country. But El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve could disappear in a few decades because of climate change, mining and deforestation. It is home to hundreds of species of animals and plants like the jaguar, horned guan and the quetzal, many of which are threatened. Meet the locals trying to save their forest.
