Caption: Cleared rainforest near Iquitos, Peru. This land has been cleared using the slash and burn method, which involves felling trees and then burning off all the undergrowth. Although it allows locals to grow crops, such as these young rice plants (Oryza sativa, green), this method is detrimental to the rich wildlife in this rainforest.
