Economy vis-à-vis Conservation

In connection to the rich biodiversity of Amazon Brazil, facts show that it has the topmost producers and exporters of soybeans after the United States. Hence, this is a positive side economically in terms of commercial and innovative agriculture. However, in the context of conservation of natural resources, this contributes to deforestation and degradation of forest areas, turning all of those cleared and burned lands to empty and lifeless lands for agricultural purposes.

In spite of having obstacles in preserving the natural resources and biodiversity within the Brazilian Amazon; local and indigenous peoples still put the priority of restoration of the destroyed areas through constant implementation of law against illegal actions of humans toward the rainforest. Indeed, the ones responsible for reforestation are the ones who began the destruction and that’s us, human beings.
