Video: Why didn’t you save the forest?

Creation care in the threatened Chaco, Argentina, with Church Mission Society mission partner Dr Andrew Leake.

"In a matter of hours or days a bulldozer can transform a landscape which was previously characterised by hundreds of species into a landscape dominated by soya bean and maybe one or two other weeds.

"So you go from thousands of species to a landscape dominated by one or two."

In this new video from CMS – Why Didn't You Save the Forest? – mission partner Dr Andrew Leake vividly describes the effects of deforestation on the isolated communities of the dry Chaco region of Argentina.

"Everything you knew is gone. It's like being put on a new planet but with no resources."
