Weniger Urwaldverluste in 2023, aber die Gefahr besteht weiter

April 4, 2024 - Die Zerstörung der tropischen Wälder der Welt in 2023 liegt in der Größenordnung von 10 Fußballplätzen pro Minute, obwohl es bereits einen dramatischen Rückgang der Waldverluste im brasilianischen und kolumbianischen Amazonasgebiet gibt.

The loss of primary forests – those untouched by people and sometimes known as old-growth forests – in the tropics declined 9% last year compared to 2022.

But Global Forest Watch researchers said the destruction remains stubbornly high. The world last year lost about 37,000 square km of tropical primary forest, an area nearly as big as Switzerland, Reuters said.
