Green concerns

Conservation NGOs are concerned about the impact of logging. "These are mature forests that have a well-established dynamic, where every tree, every animal has its role," says Juan Loja of ACCA (Asociación para la Conservación de la Cuenca Amazónica). "To destroy this dynamic could be catastrophic."
