Storyboard Text

  • Man, just look what I could do with this land. I could turn this lovely patch o' trees into a fully operational cattle ranch!
  • Deforestation Illegal!!!
  • Now that's more like it!
  • Deep in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, problems are arising. Many cattle ranchers want to turn parts of the forest into huge cattle ranches. The problem is, much of the rainforest is protected by the Brazilian government. Deforestation is often done illegaly.
  • This is ridiculous. More illegal deforestation.
  • Brazil owns about 70% of the rainforest, and has officially marked about 30% for conservation.
  • Yep, thats right. $250 million dollars in damage. You gotta bust em'!
  • We're on it.
  • Many cattle ranchers clear the land for cattle ranching. Brazil is the largest exporter of beef in the world. If the gov't allows further expansion, the government will profit. Save the Rainforest, or make more money and feed your citizens.
  • Right this way, buddy.
  • At the Brazilian capitol, agents working for the Brazilian government have discovered a gang responsible for environmental damage in excess of $250 million.
  • On a side note, Brazil is the single largest beef exporter in the world, exporting about 2 million tons of beef per year. About 90 million cattle are currently being raised in the Amazon . The Brazilian gov't profits about 6 billion dollars annualy from beef.
  • The Government agents arrest the gang responsible for the deforestation. Thanks for checking this out.
