Significant drop in deforestation and expansion of Indigenous reserves bring hope to the Amazon

In a promising turn of events, Brazil has witnessed a remarkable 66.11% reduction in deforestation in the Amazon during August, compared to the same period last year. This encouraging news was shared by Environment Minister Marina Silva on Amazon Day. These significant drops follow a similar trend in July, typically a crucial month for the rainforest.

President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, who returned to office this year, emphasized the importance of Indigenous reserves in safeguarding the Amazon, with two new reserves recently approved, and more on the horizon. This commitment marks a positive shift towards protecting the vital Amazon rainforest and curbing climate change.
