Why is the Brazilian rainforest vanishing so fast? And why is it essential not only to the people and animals within it but to the whole world?

Richard Platt's dramatic story and Rupert van Wyk's evocative art, accompanied by an information spread, offer an exciting perspective on a controversial and topical subject.
