The Cambodian farmers paid to protect birds

Rice farmers in Cambodia are battling falling regional rice prices and a black market that's been undercutting them.

The Wildlife Conservation Society, together with a firm called Ibis Rice, is offering to pay above market price for the rice.

In return, the farmers must help protect Cambodia's national bird - the Giant Ibis.
