Amazon Forest in Danger

The results of a study carried out by the University of Maryland, Google and the United States government indicates that we are losing the equivalent of 50 soccer fields of forest every minute. Very sadly, the rate of deforestation in the Amazon rain forest increased 28% between 2012 and 2013, mainly for growing crops in its place.

Please visit Losing Ground in the Amazon.

Forests are the lungs of our planet and home to innumerable species of fauna and flora. Factory farming helps drive deforestation worldwide, including the Amazon rain forest, because of the need for space for cattle grazing and also to grow crops for cattle feed. Therefore, taking a stand against deforestation requires a commitment to eat sustainable foods and to avoid animal products.
