Over the last month, more than 5.3 million hectares of Bolivian lands have gone up in flames, including some of the country’s most important places for biodiversity. These fires directly threaten the ability of Bolivia’s protected areas and other wild lands to provide clean drinking water, store carbon, harbor wildlife and preserve the culture and livelihoods of indigenous people. Around the world we need to implement economic policies that recognize and safeguard the value of biodiversity and that do not incentivize destructive agricultural practices, the driving force behind the fires across South America this year.

@roselouana They burn them!! Nothing is natural this days!!! Someone is doing this things and we need to find out who!! It’s impossible for a forest to catch on fire just like that! If they would not cut the trees and there might be more vegetation and less cutting we will slowly save the Planet.
@susanbra Thank you for thinking about my country and showing the reality we are living.
