Radio Expedition

In the first of a two-part National Geographic Radio Expedition, NPR's John Nielsen reports from Peru on how road construction can hurt the rain forests. It happened in Brazil several years ago, when the Trans Amazonian Highway brought loggers and settlers into previously inaccessible parts of the jungle. Now, the Trans-Oceanic Highway could have similar results in Peru.
