Deforestation in the Amazon

In Panama, Costa Rica, Guatemala and in other Central American and Latin American countries, the tropical forest is burnt down in order to create spaces for cattle farming. In 1980, it has been calculated, 72% of the deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil was carried out in order to create pastures for cattle.
