Take a look at this article on the website of The Atlantic, about the new strategy by the Ka’apor Indians for protecting their forests from poachers. Pretty interesting pictures. I’d worry, though, that the poachers might start shooting:

That’s pretty intense. Sort of frightening, but I suppose they feel they need to protect their homeland. Can’t really blame them for it. If people were illegally destroying my land, I wouldn’t be above chasing them with guns and beating them with sticks.
