Save farewell to our forests
Friday, 7 February 2014

AN area of forest larger than Peru has been lost to the world over the last decade, this satellite image shows.

A map based on high-resolution images from space shows that from 2000-12 almost 2,305,100sq km ( 890,000sq miles ) was lost and replaced by 800,306sq km ( 309,000sq miles ) of new trees. Malaysia, Paraguay, Bolivia, Zambia and Angola saw high levels of clearance while Indonesia saw the fastest rise od deforestation for logging and mining.
