A man carries lumber across a raised walkway in Colombia, during the dry season. In the rainy season, the river will overflow its banks and the water will rise until it reaches—or even swamps—the walkway. Availability of bushmeat in Amazonian markets ebbs and flows with the water level. During the dry season, game becomes scarce. As the water rises, remote and wildlife-rich forests become reachable by canoe and hunters can easily transport their prey from the forest to their communities
