        Deforestation in Bolivia

        Humans have had a greater impact on forests than on other land ecosystems.

In this visualization adapted from NASA, satellite images taken nearly 20 years apart demonstrate just how much of a once-densely forested region in Bolivia has been cleared for commercial purposes.
