According to the Botanic Gardens Conservation International, “World Forestry Report” published Wednesday, one-third of the forest wealth in Latin America and the Caribbean is under threat of extinction.

Of the nearly 60,000 species of trees catalogued globally, around 30% are threatened with extinction, the document noted. The study also showed a similar percentage applied to the rest of the planet.

Latin America and the Caribbean is the region with the greatest forest richness by far: almost 24,000 classified tree species (40% of the world's total), of which 7,000 are under threat (31%).
