Caption: Deforestation. Clearance of rainforest to make way for oil exploration. Such clearance has a massive environmental impact on a region. Loss of rainforest vegetation occurs through direct clearing and also from oil spills leaching into the soil. The opening up of frontier areas by oil companies encourages other forms of industry, settlement and agriculture to encroach on the forest. Photographed in the Amazon Basin, South America.
