More than 800m Amazon trees felled in six years to meet beef demand

More than 2,000 hectares of forest were apparently destroyed on a single ranch between 2018 and 2021 – São Pedro do Guaporé farm, in Pontes e Lacerda, Mato Grosso state – which sold nearly 500 cattle to JBS, though the copany said the farm was ‘blocked’ when its due diligences identified irregularities with them. ​ The JBS meat plant that processed these cattle sold beef to the UK and elsewhere in recent years.

    Lula has committed to take care of the Amazon forest. We are banking on him.

      There's absolutely need for Lula to hasten stepping up sanity in the Amazon since the insurmountable amount of damage caused might be irreversible going by the current snail's pace

        Revitalisation of the Amazon should be the key issue of address for Lula's administration since it's such an important ecosystem

          This cannot be allowed to go on. Real and fast action is needed.

              Everyone needs to reduce their red meat intake, no demand = no production. More beans, nuts, and other protein rich foods there's plenty of good healthy affordable foods that don't destroy our planet. Cows are helpful animals but billions of them is not.
