We are working with four forest-dependant communities, separated by about 250 km. Their main source of income is the harvesting of Brazil Nuts and tapping of wild rubber trees in their forests. The Bolivian Amazon is unusual in that each family is granted the ownership of 500 ha of forest but this must be held communally.
Our strategy is to work with communities who have developed a long-term management plan with the NGO Herencia. In this picture it is the community of Motacusal.
