This shot was taken across the river from the Tapajós-Arapiuns Extractive Reserve in Brazil where I was working with several caboclo communities to develop forest management plans for their furniture workshops (see Tapajós - Arapiuns). Across the river from the extractive reserve is the Floresta Nacional do Tapajós, i.e. the Tapajós National Forest. This is what it looks like in some places inside the national forest. Pastures, backpack herbicide sprayers, and hardhats. A little piece of forest is visible in the background on the right.
