Peru: First National Forest Monitoring Maps released

Deforestation in Peru detected by Landsat 8 in August 2013.

Peru hosts about 75 percent of the western Amazon jungle. Deforestation is therefore a critical topic for the country. Now, a major milestone in conserving and managing the western Amazon has been reached by mapping more than 95 percent of Peruvian forests using archived satellite imagery.
