Since taking office as Brazil’s head of state, Bolsonaro’s government has eased measures to control and control illegal mining in the world’s largest rainforest.
Illegal mining is one of the main causes of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest, which has increased during the Bolsonaro government.
Due to the destruction of more than 13,000 square kilometers of native vegetation, the deforestation of the Brazilian Amazon in 2021 was the highest in the last 15 years.
Brazil led to the loss of tropical forests in the world in 2021, causing nearly half of the destruction of this type of biomass during the period, the Global Forest Watch (GFW) reported on Thursday.
Data from the World Forest Monitoring Platform (GFW) show that 1.5 million hectares of primary tropical forests were destroyed in Brazil last year, which is 40% of all forests on the planet in 2021.
