Buried deep in the Amazon Basin in sections of the jungle long rumoured to be cursed, the Narnia Project built a hermetically sealed overpressured base where humans would not interfere with their attempts to uplift a variety of apes and birds.

Peak Operations

One hundred and twenty humans lived in the observer side of the facility. By the time the base was compromised in 2034 there were 800 uplifted animals in the proving grounds.

Origin

The project was instantiated in secret, deep in the Amazon Basin, using standard shipping containers as the framework for the majority of Narnia Base. The site was officially registered as a habitat renewal site, where end-of-life containers could be shipped. Pfizer purchased previously cleared rainforest lands, planted the containers in the middle, and let the forest reclaim the area. They used the funds to purchase undisturbed forest surrounding the site as well. That's where the actual base was constructed.

Nick Soloman was a key figure in the project, though he was rarely noticed.

Technology Developments

Later, licensing the production of dogs who could speak and understand human language became a significant profit centre.

Climate Change

The facility is environmentally isolated and founded on stilt is driven deep. It might as well be on the moon from a climate perspective.

Sea Level

The Amazon Basin has risen with sea level, meaning a lot more of Brazil is under water. The base is too far inland to be directly effected by the inundation of the ocean into the region.
