Forests of Vietnam

Vietnam has the second highest rate of deforestation of any country in the world. Over the past 50 years, the area of primary forest in this country has declined from 45% to less than 15%.  This is what the outside and inside of the last 15% looks like. It was a privilege to spend the last two weeks working in these forests. May they be conserved and used wisely. [NOTE: Nigeria, apparently, has the world's highest rate of deforestation].

The beautiful understory plants are Licuala palms (see Harvesting Licuala). Both images are from Song Thanh Nature Reserve.
