He successfully led a campaign against Malaysian logging giant Concord Pacific to stop illegal logging and gross exploitation of locals by the Malaysians. Sep then created, along with the help of Greenpeace, an eco-forestry project to benefit the local people of Lake Murray to whom the forest traditionally belongs.Locations:Lake Murray-Oceania-Papua New GuineaDate:28 Dec, 2008Credit:© Brent Stirton / Reportage by Getty ImagesMaximum size:5616px X 3744pxRestrictions:IMPORTANT - THESE PICTURES ARE FOR INTERNAL GREENPEACE USE ONLY - NOT FOR MEDIA DISTRIBUTION Keywords:Day-Forests (campaign title)-KWCI (GPI)-Lakes-Men-MEN (Man)-One person-Outdoors-Pacific Islander ethnicities-PortraitsShoot:Documenting Lake Murray Papua New GuineaLake Murray is a region where people have lived lives in harmony with nature for centuries. People make their living by hunting, farming, fishing, and growing rubber trees and now also with Eco-forestry. Their life-styles are dependent on the harmony between them and nature and they are trying to ensure a sustainable relationship for future generations. This has been complicated and compromised by the interventions of both international mining and logging groups over the last few decades but local community resistance is growing as rising anger mounts at the environmental damage done to rivers and forests which form the backbone of the village survival system.
