Peru: The Enablers of Destruction



The vast Peruvian Amazon suffers from high rates of deforestation, and a race to buy up the remaining land has revealed an intricate web of power and corruption.

In this project, investigative reporter Milagros Salazar Herrera and the Convoca team delve into documents and geospatial data to uncover the degradation of forested territories. Through trips to the Amazon, the team identified the agents and accomplices of illegal land trafficking.
