Dug out canoe

A woman from a fishing community living along the Serkap river in Riau paddles by in a traditional hand-crafted dug out canoe. These people are heavily affected by deforestation as large quantities of nutrients drained from the land after logging acidify rivers, lakes and water ways. Since 1998 their catch has dropped by 70 percent reflecting the scale of the surrounding destruction.
