Forest Loss

 

Colombia

 

The Amazon Rainforest, in the last 40 years has lost more of 20% of the forest; because Cattle ranching (65-70%); Small-scale subsistence agriculture (20-25%); Large-scale commercial agriculture (5-10%); Logging legal and illegal (2-3%); Fires, mining, urbanization, road construction, dams (1-2%).

Is very important to work with the Colombian Government, Conservationists, Scientists, Universities, Colleges and local people, to establish alternative and sustainable economic income to the Indigenous Communities and people in the Amazon Forest to preserve the biggest forest in our planet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mexico

 

The 33.7% — or about 64,238,000 hectares — of Mexico is forested. Of this, 51.1% —or roughly 32,850,000 hectares—is classified as primary forest, the most biodiverse form of forest. Change in Forest Cover: Between 1990 and 2000, Mexico lost an average of 347,600 hectares of forest per year.

 

The amounts to an average annual deforestation rate of 0.50%. Between 2000 and 2005, the rate of forest change decreased by 21.1% to 0.40% per annum. In total, between 1990 and 2005, Mexico lost 6.9% of its forest cover, or around 4,778,000 hectares. Mexico lost -5,925,000 hectares of its primary forest cover during that time.

 

Deforestation rates of primary cover have decreased 15.3% since the close of the 1990s. Measuring the total rate of habitat conversion (defined as change in forest area plus change in woodland area minus net plantation expansion) for the 1990-2005 interval, Mexico lost 7.4% of its forest and woodland habitat.

 

Biodiversity and Protected Areas: Mexico has some 2765 known species of amphibians, birds, mammals and reptiles according to figures from the World Conservation Monitoring Centre. Of these, 34.0% are endemic, meaning they exist in no other country, and 12.3% are threatened. Mexico is home to at least 26071 species of vascular plants, of which 47.9% are endemic. 0.6% of Mexico is protected under IUCN categories I-V. . Data Mongabay . Mexico

 

Is very important to work with the Mexican Government, Conservationists, Scientists, Universities, Colleges and local people to establish alternative and sustainable economic income to the Indigenous Communities - Ejidatarios, and local people to preserve one of the biggest forest in our planet.
