Amazon rainforest plots sold on Facebook

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Parts of Brazil's Amazon rainforest are being illegally sold on Facebook, the BBC has discovered.

The protected areas include national forests and land reserved for indigenous peoples.

Some of the plots listed via Facebook's classified ads service are as large as 1,000 football pitches.

Facebook said it was "ready to work with local authorities", but indicated it would not take independent action of its own to halt the trade.

"Our commerce policies require buyers and sellers to comply with laws and regulations," the Californian tech firm added.

The shadow of Bolsonaro's retrograde Amazon policy hangs over the rainforest.   :(
