Can you see any forest?

I was lucky to sit at the window. As the plane was getting closer to Petén it was possible to see several little towns and... leftovers of the forest. In between there were many spots that have been cleared for livestock and agriculture. This is why sustainable forestry management is necessary to conserve the forest and to provide sources of income to the people depending on it.

This made me even more eager to meet our project partner FORESCOM.
