Environmental degradation

Groups that defend the rights of indigenous peoples and a healthy environment have warned about the loss of the Venezuelan Amazon - where most of the country's forests are located -and it has worsened in recent years. The damage and environmental degradation in the territory covered by the Orinoco Mining Arc has also been denounced by various organizations. The lack of official information adds to these complaints and alerts and the absence of measures to protect the environment and the affected populations.
