Nasir Jambang pulls his jammed fishing boat out from a reed bank where the waterway is narrow. The peatland forests hold huge amounts of carbon that is released back into the atmosphere and waterways when the rainforest is logged. The acidification of the water has led to a dramatic decline in fish catch for local fisherman such as Nasir.
