Fishing village

A fishing community living in the peatland rainforest along the Serkap river in the Kampar peninsula. These people are affected by deforestation as large quantities of nutrients drain from deforested land acidifying rivers, lakes and water ways. Since 1998 their catch has dropped by 70 percent reflecting the scale of the surrounding forest destruction.
