Brazilian soy industry extends moratorium on deforestation indefinitely

Conservation usually is a long list of bad news, so hearing something positive is rather quite rare and I think should be put forward much more! I’m not 100% sure about the current state of the amazon, but from what I hear it seems Brazil is doing a fairly decent job in stopping deforestation. An indefinite moratorium on soy bean expansion is a good sign especially coming from the industry and can hopefully function as an example for other industries and countries as well!
