Logging has become an invader to the Baka people who live in the rainforest in southeast Cameroon. In this video segment, a man rises in the morning to the sound of a buzz saw cutting down another tree. The Baka can only stand by and watch silently as loggers rob them of their trees. The rainforests of West Africa have almost disappeared. What happens in Cameroon will affect what happens to the rest of the Congo Basin, one of the oldest living ecosystems in the world. Learn more about the lives of the Baka in "Who are the Baka?" and "Taking a Stand," part of a sequence of three video segments from the series Africa.
