Storyboard Text

  • Illegal Distribution of Land
  • They'll never know...
  • Yay look at all this land we baought!
  • Illegal Deforstation
  • Clearing land for cattle
  • In the Amazon rainforest gangs are invading people's land, clearing the land, and reselling it to people. These people are also sufering the consequences for this even though they didn't know that the were buying land illegally.
  • Indigenous Groups
  • Gangs in the Amazon are going on protected land and illegally chopping down the trees. Which is destroying the Amazon rainforest.
  • How they're fixing it
  • Brazil is a major exporter of beef. They export about 2 million tons of beef per year. Because of this they have to cut down more and more trees for the cattle to be able to graze.
  • The Cadastro Ambiental Rural
  • The Johnson's
  • Public Property
  • In the Amazon there are still indigenous groups that haven't been contacted by the outside world. With this deforestation some are being discovered, and that is making it difficult for deciding borders.
  • Brazil is using satellites made by NASA to monitor the deforestation. It's not perfect because you can't tell who the cleared lands belong to so you don't know if it's legal or illegal. They are trying to fix these errors and hopefully in the future they will be able to stop illegal deforestation.
  • This is supposed to help stop deforestation because it will record property limits and who owns it . So if the satellites see deforestation they will be able to tell if it's illegal or not.

  • The Madison's
