See the wood from the trees by Martin, Jean-Philippe

Laos owns one of the last primary forests in Asia. For several years, thousands of hectares of this ancestral forest have been brought down and replaced by an industrial culture of hevea, the rubber tree. Three local initiatives attempt to make the young laotians aware of the richness of their environmental heritage and of the danger of deforestation having irremediable consequences on biodiversity.
