A reportagem analisa como o fogo impactou a Floresta Amazônica na tríplice fronteira do Brasil com a Bolívia e o Peru.

No mês de agosto a Amazônia passou por um dos piores momentos de sua história. O fogo consumiu grandes porções da vegetação. O uso do fogo não ficou restrito apenas ao Brasil, mas também aos outros países da Pan-Amazônia, como Bolívia e Peru. Comunidades nos departamentos de Pando, na Bolívia, Madre de Dios, no Peru, e no estado do Acre, Brasil, foram impactadas de forma direta pelas queimadas. A reportagem investiga como esta região agora lida com a consequência dos incêndios.

In the month of August, the Amazon went through one of the worst moments in its history. The fire consumed a large part of the vegetation. The use of fire was not restricted to Brazil, as it extended to other countries in the Pan-Amazonian region including Bolivia and Peru. Communities in the states of Pando in Bolivia, Madre de Dios in Peru, and Acre in Brazil were all directly impacted by the fires. This project investigates how this region is dealing with the aftermath of the blaze.
