Caption: Deforestation in the Amazon rainforest, Brazil, comparing 1990 (top) and 2000 (bottom), satellite image. Roads take loggers into the centre of the rainforest, branching off to provide access to trees for logging. Rainforests are important areas of biodiversity but over the last 30 years around five million acres have been destroyed every year in Brazil alone.
