Cleared land in the Amazon Jungle, Brazil

Year: 2010
From collection: World Forest Ecosystems
Taken by: Riccardo Pravettoni
Deforestation in the Amazon area is driven mainly by industry and agriculture. Mato Grosso means "Thick Woods" and is the name of an inland state of central Brazil, where widespread forest clearing has had a dramatic impact on the land. Forest clearing has been centralized mostly along new roadways cut through the jungle.
