Forestry burn

OUR IMPACT – Winner

Smoke clouds rise above a logging coupe that has been lit by napalm-like incendiaries dropped from a helicopter. Such ‘regeneration burns’ emit massive amounts of carbon pollution, on average 700 tonnes/hectare. Such logging and burning devastates the natural forest and its wildlife.
