In the last 8000 years we have lost vast areas of forest. More than half, to be precise. This is due, among other things, to indiscriminate felling of trees to obtain timber and create areas of land for cultivation and livestock farming. At this rate, how much longer will we still have forests?
In addition, we have lost 80% of our primary forests, which are those that have not been subjected to human activity and whose ecosystem has not been disturbed. They are our pharmacies, in a sense, and they harbour an enormous amount of flora and fauna still unknown to science. Every year we are losing a large area of these primary forests, which, unlike the others, are irrecoverable. At this rate of destruction, how long do the primary forests have left?
