Two-thirds of UK public say government should do more to tackle Amazon destruction.

Sixty seven percent of the UK public believe that the government should be doing more to tackle destruction in the Amazon, according to a UK-wide survey conducted by WWF.

Additionally, 81 percent of people said there should be greater transparency of the origin of the products we import into the UK and almost three-quarters (73 percent) said the UK should stop trading with countries that fail to protect the natural environment.

This news comes as more than 20,000 fires were detected in the Amazon in August this year – following an increase in deforestation alerts of 33 percent since last year.
