Fire in the Amazon
I’m joined by Vice President of the National Wildlife Federation, Dr. Mustafa Santiago Ali. We discuss the Amazon Rainforest fires, including what caused them, why it’s taking so long to put them out, and how they are related to climate change.
The website for the National Wildlife Federation is NWF.org and their Twitter handle is @NWF. Dr. Ali’s handle is @EJinAction.
Also, please check out the website that Dr. Ali mentions during the broadcast, ZeroDeforestationCattle.org. The site aims to showcase how supply chain initiatives are supporting effective solutions for verified zero deforestation beef, leather, and tallow production in the Brazilian Amazon. The site also highlights ways for supply chain actors to support continuous improvement and ensure that cattle products sourced from this region do not contribute to the loss of tropical forests.
