Perda de floresta tropical aliviou em 2023 mas a ameaça mantém-se

April 4, 2024 - A destruição das florestas tropicais do mundo continuou a um ritmo de
10 campos de futebol por minuto em 2023, apesar da profunda redução
da perda de floresta na Amazónia brasileira e colombiana.

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.
