Tima Village, Cape Mount County, Liberia

Gola Community Forest.   A mother with daughters pause on the way to their plantation bordering the recently established Gola National Park. Slash and burn agriculture is slowly carving away Liberia’s remaining rainforest. Community forests are being established to try to turn over the management of remaining forests to local residents, with emphasis on preservation and sustainable use.
