In the morning, a number of women in Dusun Aik Abik, Gunung Muda Village, Bangka Regency, Bangka Belitung Islands, are busy ngetem [harvesting rice] in a thousand square meter field, at the foot of Mount Cundong [300 meters]. Towards noon, five women in a hut on stilts at the foot of Bukit Sumedang [200 meters] rushed to load the grain into a number of sacks, which had just been dried in the sun for about an hour in the cottage yard.

In the sky, a stretch of black clouds was visible. "It's raining, so it's stored first. Tomorrow sunbathing again," said Nek Ma, 60, owner of the cottage, mid-February 2022.

"This year's rice crop is enough to eat a year. It might be 4-5 sacks [400 kilograms of rice]. But the last few years, our crop has been poor. Many birds and monkeys [Macaca fascicularis Raffles] eat our rice. This is all because the forest is depleted, making it difficult for many animals to find food," said Nek Ma.
