    One of the most positive activities under the project has been the introduction of alternative livelihoods of Gracilaria seaweed cultivation to villages near the coast where before the men had generally farmed up against the forest edge and were involved in illegal logging and rattan extraction. The seaweed cultivation allows them now to work for less time and for a significantly greater return, and they no longer turn to the forest for sources of income. (Photos by Judith Schleicher)
