As the planet's urban landscapes grow by the day, it's most important wild spaces are shrinking.

In South America trees are cleared for farming.

In the Amazon, small patches of green, protected by local tribes, are all that remain of a once great forest.

And on the island of Madagascar, images taken over 30 years show it has lost over eighty percent of it's original forest.
