A CHARCOAL WORKER RESTS IN MATANG. 
A Malaysian worker puffs a smoke as he takes a rest after loading mangrove
wood to make charcoal at Kampung Dapur Arang, or Charcoal Kiln Village, in
Matang in Malaysia's northern state of Perak. Forty tons of mangrove wood
are loaded into the kiln and it takes 26 to 30 days to produce 10 tons of
charcoal. The village industry is more than 70-years-old and the end product
is an expensive high grade charcoal, most of which is exported to Japan
where charcoal is valued as a water filter and moisture absorbant. The
mangrove forests in Matang have been sustainably managed for 100 years and a
30-year rotational system allows the mangrove to regenerate naturally.
