Marcielino Tobias Cobeshi has been voted in as the new chief of the village of Cutivireni. In his speech to the community last week he told everyone how much he values the biodiversity in the forest, and that the village’s very survival depends on keeping trees standing:

“We want to protect our forest. If we sell our forest there will be no more help. If we chop the trees or eat animals we are going to disappear from the forest as well.”
