Honduras' forest fires have dropped significantly in contrast with last year
In 2013, the fires in our forests devastated huge areas in our country. In total, from 2008 through 2013, there were 6580 fires in Honduras. From January to March in 2013, 26,928 hectares burned, but this year only a little more of 4,000 were consumed by fire. The cyphers have dropped to only 15% of last year. The factors that contributed to this improvement were the cold season we had from January to February and a better care of the woods.
