It was revealed that the Amazon rainforest in Brazil is currently suffering from the worst deforestation since 2008.

According to the Brazilian Space Agency, 11,088 square kilometers of the Brazilian part of the Amazon rainforest was destroyed between August last year and July this year. This is an increase of 9.5% over the previous year.

Scientists believe that the damage to the Amazon rainforest has accelerated since President Jair Bolsonaro came to power in January last year.
