Cattle grazing is a major cause of deforestation -- experts estimate that producing a quarter-pound of beef consumes about 55 square feet of rainforest and individuals from hundreds of species. Unfortunately, the revenues generated by beef exports make significant contributions to Latin American economies. Therefore, many national governments encourage their citizens to build ranches in the rain forest.
