For the month of December, I'll be posting some of my favorite pictures from 2012. All of these photos were taken during the course of my reporting travels.
This is Lagoa Misteriosa, a collapsed limestone cave near Bonito, Brazil. The visibility here can exceed 40 meters.
I was in Bonito for the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation's annual conference where I organized a symposium on "Changing Drivers of Deforestation."
