Its medicinal properties can combat sinus infections by inhaling the white smoke emitted as it burns. It is also used to seal the insides of boats and canoes since it also hardens and becomes a good sealant.Locations:Amazon-Brazil-National Forest Tapajós-Pará-South AmericaDate:21 Jul, 2013Credit:© Greenpeace / John NovisMaximum size:5760px X 3840pxKeywords:Close ups-Day-Forests (campaign title)-Forests (topography)-Hands-Indigenous People-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-National parks-One person-Outdoors-Tropical rainforestsShoot:Amazon Soya DocumentationThe soya industry has temporarily stopped buying produce from newly-deforested areas in the Amazon, but permanent protection is not guaranteed.A Soya Working Group was created to support the implementation of the moratorium. Members include soya traders such as Bunge, Cargill, ADM and Amaggi, as well as NGOs including Greenpeace, Conservation International, TNC, IPAM and WWF. The Brazilian government also committed to support the moratorium by speeding up the registration and mapping of rural properties. This includes designating environmental and economic zoning within the Amazon biome and prioritising areas where soya production is concentrated. The government also monitors and searches for newly deforested areas, using advanced satellite mapping at a higher level of detail than before.
