This image was taken south of Jane Goodall Institute's Misitu-Ugalla conservation project in Tanzania. Tobacco plantations and other slash and burn farming methods are threatening chimp populations in Western Tanzania. This images shows the remnants of the forest within the tobacco field as well as beautiful standing forest on the edge of the field. I used this image to great effect recently at a presentation. I started with a series of shots of wonderful chimp habitat, then used this one, zoomed in to the standing forest (far right of image). I then slowly zoomed out to reveal the tobacco field. There is enough detail to show that even on the edge of the forest, people have 'ringed' the larger trees to kill them.
