Protecting Peru’s Tropical Rainforest

Peru has the fourth-largest area of tropical rainforest in the world, but it is also vulnerable to illegal logging – losing up to a million hectares in the past decade. Six reserves have now been set up to provide living space for the indigenous people and protect the forest. Photo Credit: Victoria Reay via Flickr.

Not doing too well for landlords are we? Well done to those who have started making inroads into the rights and wrongs of conservation

My personal favourite is the Western Cape biome in South Africa, with amazingly diverse plant life, dramatic mountains and a stunning coastline. But, yes, rainforests need protection against so-called development.

I think all biome or eco-regions are important to our beautiful planet's health so I love them all. Well done Peru for doing your bit to protect it!
