The European Space Agency (ESA) last week released an animation showing deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon between 1986 and 2010.
The satellite images show land cover change in Rondônia, a Brazilian state known for its high rate of deforestation since the 1970s. Forests have been cleared in Rondônia mostly for low productivity cattle ranches and industrial soy farms.
