If your internet connection can stand it - here are the full stats for the 2010-12 forest cover changes. Guatemala is horrific - and Belize is beginning to look that way in places. You can see exactly where the Mennonites live...

Sad that we are just sitting back and watching this happen. these forests don't grow back overnight and the critters we are killing off will never recover. :-(

It's going to escalate now that Belize have started giving export permits - farmers will get greedy and Guatemala are desperate for produce. Hundreds of thousands of acres disappeared last year to the north of the BRV and no-one said a bloody word :-(
