InSight Crime and the Igarapé Institute have been delighted at the response to our joint investigation into environmental crimes in the Colombian Amazon. Coverage of our chapters dedicated to illegal mining and deforestation has appeared in The Times, Folha de São Paulo, El Espectador and many more.
This week, the next chapter dedicated to wildlife trafficking explores why virtually every type of animal in the rainforest is a potential target and reveals the international networks fueling this trade.
Future installments on how official corruption contributes to deforestation and on how authorities can stand up to those destroying the Amazon will be published on September 22 and 29.
