The Raft Men of Brazil.
Globalization is undermining small artisan fishing communities who have thrived along these Brazilian waters for centuries.
Twenty years ago thousands
of artisan fishing settlements dotted this 4,000 km of coastline, today only a handful remain."
Paulo Prado - Conservation International
Men who sail rafts are Brazil's most celebrated fishermen. Immortalized
in film , books and poetry. Yet in our digital age they are often ignored or degraded as museum relics despite a growing body of research that points to their contribution in ways that are profoundly important.
