Haitians In Limbo & Enrique Chiu

Costa Rica - Haitians in Limbo

At the border between Costa Rica and Nicaragua, thousands of Haitians have been arriving, dead tired, but full of hope. They have come from Brazil, a place they fled two years ago in search of a better future. But the crisis in Brazil has them fleeing once again. After trekking more than 5,000 kilometers, their journey has come to an abrupt halt. Correspondent Harris Whitbeck reports about this refugee camp in Costa Rica.

Game Changer - Enrique Chiu

The border dividing Mexico and the United States has become a symbol for fear and division, but one artist is on a quest to transform it into a beacon of hope and humanity. His project is called the "Wall of Brotherhood," and it aims to inspire hearts and minds meter by meter of the border wall. Our Game Changer this week is Enrique Chiu.

Nicaragua - Turtle Trouble

Imagine standing on a beach and seeing thousands of turtles emerge from the ocean and onto the shore all at once. It happens each year in Nicaragua. Certain turtles — like the Olive Ridley — migrate there to lay their eggs. But threats to these sea creatures are causing trouble. Our correspondent Grace Gonzalez reports from the Nicaraguan Coast to see how turtle conservationists are helping ensure the survival of this revered and endangered reptile.

Peru - Uncontacted

Peru - Uncontacted (Dan Collyns) - Living deep within the Amazon rainforest, in Brazil and Peru, are dozens of so-called "un-contacted" tribes. These indigenous and historic communities have had little to almost no contact with the outside world. The Mashco Piro people are believed to have fled into the recesses of the jungle during the Amazon Rubber "Boom" in the late 1800s. This was a time of enslavement and death for many tribes. The Mashco Piro had rejected all contact with outsiders until recently.
