Ambatovy, MADAGASCAR

Four year old Fidelise holds a sapling due to be planted. It is part of a scheme to restore destroyed forest near to where his house was levelled to make way for the 200km long pipeline leading from the Ambatovy Mine. Sherritt, one of the world's largest mining companies, is constructing the world's largest nickel mine in Madagascar. At risk is one of the world's most diverse rainforests. Indigenous tribes face mass displacement, and the island's 200,000 plant and animal species, of which at least 75 percent are unique to the island, are under threat.
