Compared to our protected lives, daily life in the Amazon seems harsh—dominated by physical labor. Men work on construction of houses and canoes, tending crops, hunting and fishing, while women take care of children, cooking and household chores. Especially in large towns, others have found new niches in this changing world: naturalist guides for local ecotour companies, working in tourist lodges, making or selling handicrafts, and conventional Western professions: doctor, dentist, shopkeeper and so on.
