Combating deforestation in Bolivia

Bolivian farmers are taking new steps to reduce deforestation efforts to make way for cattle.

    For more than a hundred years, families at a village in northern Bolivia have raised cattle.

    But in order to to create areas for grazing, they destroyed nearby forests for the land.

    Now they are taking part in a new project to try to reduce the impact on the environment.
