Deep in the Amazon, a dozen agents from the Brazilian Institute for the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (Ibama) are shutting down an illegal logger in the northern Brazilian state of Pará.
The brigade measures the logs to be used as evidence, while they tear down the construction of the clandestine plant.
The anti-deforestation raids have been implemented by President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who has vowed to curb the environmental impact of his predecessor, Jair Bolsonaro.
During the Bolsonaro government, funds and personnel assigned to environmental work were cut.
The former president also criticized Ibama's fines for miners and farmers and imposed an order to restrict contact of environmental agents with the press.
Former President Bolsonaro also delegated operations against deforestation to the Army and later to the Ministry of Justice, excluding the environmental agency Ibama.
In his tenure, an area of the Amazon equivalent to the surface of Denmark was deforested, an increase of 60%.
