Canoe navigates in what is left of an Amazon River tributary in the Brazilian Amazon

A canoe navigates past a collapsing river bank along what is left of the drought-stricken Parana de Manaquiri River, a tributary of the Amazon River, near the city of Manaquiri in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon Basin, October 9, 2005. The worlds biggest rainforest is suffering its worst drought in 40 years, causing 16 cities to be declared on alert or in crisis as forest fires and health problems rise.

EDITORS COMMENTS
In this powerful print captured by Rickey Rogers, we witness the devastating effects of a severe drought on the Amazon River tributary in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon Basin. A lone canoe bravely navigates through what remains of the Parana de Manaquiri River, as it passes a collapsing river bank. The scene is both haunting and symbolic, representing the struggle faced by nature and its inhabitants in this ecological crisis. The image serves as a stark reminder of the unprecedented challenges that have befallen the world's largest rainforest. In 2005, Brazil experienced its worst drought in four decades, leading to widespread forest fires and health issues for local communities. As 16 cities were declared on alert or in crisis, people had to confront not only environmental devastation but also an uncertain future. Rogers' photograph encapsulates both beauty and tragedy within its frame. The serene waters juxtaposed with eroding banks tell a story of resilience amidst adversity. It highlights how fragile ecosystems can succumb to extreme weather events caused by climate change. This thought-provoking image compels us to reflect upon our role as stewards of our planet's natural resources. It calls for urgent action to mitigate climate change impacts and protect invaluable ecosystems like the Amazon rainforest from further destruction.
