With no outside communications, they were completely isolated and struggled with a culture very different from their own. Despite numerous setbacks and hardships, they introduced the people to alternative food sources and worked with them to better manage and protect their environment. With funding from the European Union and WaterAid, they were able to provide clean water and sanitation to fifty remote villages.
This had a huge impact on the health and welfare of more than ten thousand people across the Torricellis. This in turn has helped the Tenkile. In the fourteen years since Jim and Jean arrived, their population has risen to more than three hundred. Healthy, well-fed people are far less likely to be driven to hunt.

If they can get the support they need and it is successful, then this model could be used in South America, Africa and Oceania to stop further exploitation of natural resources. From their first effort to save one creature, they could potentially impact thousands more animal species and human lives. Feature-length documentaries on Papua New Guinea are seldom made.
The wild, remote locations and unpredictable climate and political circumstances present considerable challenges. So making a film like Into the Jungle provides a unique opportunity not only to profile the amazing work of Jim and Jean Thomas, but to get a rare insight into how life is for the people who live in the wilderness areas of this country. As a small NGO, non-government organisation Jim and Jean have already been very effective in helping and educating a group of villages comprising more than ten thousand people. Their methods, so far very successful, have the potential to become a model for other communities and conservation programs.
As Jim said to me, conservation is 10 per cent studying animals and 90 per cent working with people, because it is the people who ultimately create or destroy habitat.
How will they move forward without destroying their cultural heritage and the incredible biodiversity of the jungle they live in? People in Papua New Guinea have retained more of their original culture than most other tribal-based communities around the world. But in the last few decades the rate at which they have had to change and adapt to outside influences has been astounding. Eighty years ago, most of the population was living as it had for centuries, with little change.
