Take physic, pomp

A most impressive map of the Amazon rainforest

A couple of weeks ago IKN ran this post with a chart that shows just how much (read ‘how little’) of the Amazon rainforest is protected by its host countries. Well now the people behind the study RAISG, have released their truly fabulous interactive zoom-in detailed map of the whole region, it’s protected areas, its indigenous territories etc etc
Click to enlarge (it gets very big)
The above map is a screenshot from the site, but you should really go to the link right here and have a play for yourself. It really is everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the Amazon rainforest but were too afraid to ask and you can zoom in and out, change parameters, look in close detail and all the rest. A highly recommended website and superb source material.
