The meat sold in restaurants and supermarkets around the world is driving destruction of the forests and savannas of South America. The meat industry grabs the traditional lands of indigenous communities to turn them into soybean monocultures to provide animal feed. Mighty Earth is organizing around the world to show supermarkets and restaurants that people don’t want to eat meat that’s linked to destruction of native ecosystems or abuse of indigenous people, and channel development onto previously cleared lands instead.

Fanning the Flames: The Corporations Destroying the Amazon and Worsening the COVID-19 Pandemic


September 2020

A new analysis by environmental campaign organization Mighty Earth, working in collaboration with MapHubs, links meat companies JBS, Marfrig, and Minerva to the fires raging in the Amazon and highlights how these fires are likely exacerbating the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on local communities. The report maps the fires intentionally set in Brazil this year and overlays local company supply chain information to understand which companies are driving the destruction. Mighty Earth’s analysis also highlights how these fires are likely exacerbating the impacts of COVID-19. The three hotspot municipalities reported a combined 47,988 cases as of August 16, 2020, and an infection rate more than twice the national average by total population.
