Deforestation of Amazon surges to highest levels since 2006

TRT World says The Amazon Rainforest’s deforestation rates show major repeated increases under since Brazlian President Jair Bolsonaro took office in January 2019.

The area deforested in Brazil’s Amazon has reached a 15-year high after a 22% jump from the prior year.

The National Institute for Space Research’s PRODES monitoring system showed the Brazilian Amazon lost 13,235 square kilometers of rainforest in the 12-month reference period from Aug. 2020 to July 2021. This was its highest loss of forest area since 2006.

Annual Amazon deforestation has increased drastically for the third time in a row under the presidency of Jair Bolsonaro.
