Working to safeguard important Choco forest in the Río Canandé Reserve, head ranger Galo provides data for the Carbon Balanced programme by the World Land Trust.

Galo said: “There should be more opportunities given for local people to contribute to conservation, for example through reforestation campaigns.”
