The jungle is a place of fascinating beauty. But nevertheless, it remains a universe in which one must respect certain rules and where each living being has adapted and learned to live by developing its own weapons to defend itself, to hunt and to survive. Which is what makes this place so majestic and disturbing at the same time.
With some basic knowledge, the forest offers a castaway everything that they need for food, shelter, moving about, finding their way, healing themselves and surviving.
