Brazil

Kora Fortun


Largest country in South America


Dams


Hydroelectricity


Indigenous people

The dam will cut off the free flow of the river, this means that natives won’t be able travel by boat to towns and cities for medical supplies and various other needs.

A boat does not want to go over that!


Flooding

Dams can cause flooding in areas because they aren’t letting enough water through.

This would be the flooded area.


Illegal Logging

An illegal logging operation in the Amazon River basin.


Pig Iron

Land is often cleared for the mining of pig iron, the raw form of steal. This is a piece of land from where trees were cut down, and then pig iron was mined out of the land.


Threatening

Indigenous tribes have been threatened by the loggers.

"We are not able to go to the city, because it is dangerous for us. We are being threatened by loggers, they call here and say they will kill us." Augusto Gavião (villager)

Guarding a truckload of trees that were cut down illegally.


Burning

When trees are burnt for grazing land or any other uses the trees let off methane.
