Brazil river threatened by drought

Dying marine life destroying livelihoods of Manaquiri river fishermen.



    While talks and speeches to try to reach a new global treaty continue in Copenhagen, the effects of climate change can already been seen.

    One country that is particularly suffering is Brazil, where the northern Amazonas region is suffering from a devastating drought.

    The drought is threatening the Manaquiri river, killing the marine life and destroying the livelihoods of local fishermen.
