Written by Ben Davis
  • Up to one hundred and seventy million hectares of forest could be destroyed by 2030.

  • By 2050, forty percent of The Amazon could be wiped out if deforestation continues at its current rate.

  • Cattle ranching, agriculture and conversion to crop plantations such as palm oil, are some of the leading contributors to deforestation presently.
