(1 Ratings)
Price: Free
Illegal coca plantations are often hidden in pristine jungle areas, in the interior of Colombia. To produce cocaine out of the leaves, farmers use several toxic substances, which are afterwards dumped in the surrounding forest. To stop the coca production, the Colombian government is spraying illegal plantations with herbicides, affecting every living thing in the surrounding. What is worse for a region with one of the highest biodiversity rates of the world?
