Mexico, the forest planter

José Camacho is well-known in the state of Chiapas, southern Mexico, where he's affectionately known as Pepe Camacho or El Capitan. For three years now, the pilot has been collecting the seeds of indigenous trees before dropping them from his little Cessna 185. The aim: re-foresting land burned by farmers.
