Myanmar Lost Forests

Myanmar Lost Forests

In this June 25, 2016 photo, an environmental activist who aims to combat illegal logging, stands next to a tree stump at a recently raided illegal logging site in what use to be a forest in Chaung Gwet, in northern Sagaing division, Myanmar. Myanmar is struggling to stop illegal logging that has erased one-quarter of the country’s valuable forests in a generation. Teak, rosewood and other rare hardwoods continue to be cut down, despite a government ban, the Associated Press found on a recent trip to the country’s north. China and India are the biggest markets for the timber by far. (AP Photo/Gemunu Amarasinghe)
