Rate of deforestation in Brazil rose 28% between 2012/13

Brazilian minister Izabella Teixeira has said that she’ll be talking to local authorities after it was revealed that between August 2012 and July 2013, the rate of deforestation in the Amazon rainforest rose a huge 28%. This coming to light is especially shocking as for many years now, the deforestation rate has been in decline year on year. During this period of twelve months 2,255 square miles of land were affected compared to the 1,765 square miles that had been affected in the 12 months previous.

Although you might feel it’s unnecessary to go shopping for something now when you know you’re not going to be using it until the summer, if you want to get a good deal on furniture then winter is definitely the best time to seek out deals on garden products. Retailers nearly always reduce stock out of season, which means that if you want...

African nations join fight against illegal logging

The Congo Basin is not only known for being home to the second largest rainforest in the world. In recent years it has also become one of the biggest sites for illegal logging. However, since the EU and Indonesia imposed new regulations to prevent illegally logged timber from entering European trade, six African countries – the Republic of the Congo, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast and Gabon – have agreed to work together to help put a stop to the illegal logging and timber trade which is rife in the region. The Brazzaville...
