Amazon deforestation remains low in Brazil

Date : 10th August 2010, Source : Mongabay



Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon has fallen since last year, say Brazilian officials. Data from INPE, Brazil's Space Agency, show a 49 percent decline in the August 2009-June 2010 window, relative to the year earlier period. INPE says forest clearing fell from 1,875 square kilometers to around 1125 sq km, but cautioned that the figures are still far from finalized.
