Forest panorama

You chose to clear the section of primary tropical forest. You'll enjoy high yields of your crops next year, but you'll have to walk farther to hunt and trap birds and animals. You still have primary forest on your land (beyond the border of this map), but you will have to walk farther to reach it, and to find many of the natural medicines that you and your family rely on to stay healthy.

Would you like to learn more about the crops or animals that you eat?
