Saving the Maya rainforest

“The Selva Maya is home to immense biodiversity – and the ancient Maya city of Tikal. Today, the forest is under threat but NGOs and locals are working together to save it, along with their livelihoods.”

GR:  Most of the Mayan rainforest is already gone. The nonsensical idea that it can be saved by teaching people to harvest the nuts from the trees sounds like greenwashing for GIZ, the German development organization.  The human population in the area is growing. The nuts will eventually become inadequate to support them, and the remaining trees will begin to disappear.
