MAAP #192: Confirming Deforestation by Mennonites in the Peruvian Amazon

September 27, 2023

Based on previous reports (e.g.  MAAP #188), the Peruvian Amazon is facing massive deforestation by Mennonite colonies. 

Our latest publication from MAAP #192 demonstrates through very high-resolution satellite imagery (0.5 meters from Planet’s Skysat fleet) that these Mennonite colonies (Chipiar, Providencia, and Vanderland), located in the regions of Loreto and Ucayali, caused the large scale destruction of primary forests.

By comparing a series of these high resolution images across multiple Mennonite colony areas, it is confirmed that Mennonites are actively responsible for clearing primary forests in 2023.
