In this Oct. 28, 2015 photo, Waldir Rodriguez, who was hired to destroy illegal coca crops, takes an early morning shower at a base camp set up by the Control and Reduction of Coca Leaf in Upper Huallaga (CORAH) in a field that was burned down by local farmers in Nueva Esperanza, a remote village in the municipality of Ciudad Constitucion in Peru’s Amazon. Although the eradicators destroyed a record number of coca plants in 2013-14, they haven’t pulled a single bush out of the main production area: the Apurimac, Ene and Mantaro river valley, which lies to the south, where about 15 drug trafficking groups operate.
