Salta, the province hardest hit by wildfires
According to the SNMF report, there is no active fire in the provinces of Córdoba, San Luis, Catamarca and Buenos Aires. For a few days now, the images that record the fires have been sweeping. Argentina is among the ten countries with the highest deforestation in the world and at a critical time for the northern regions of the country, victims of the agro-industrial sectors.
A few days ago the images of Cordoba on fire were some of the most poignant but the truth is that it is a situation that is repeated in various areas of the country and requests the intervention of the State to preserve the environment, its resources, the people and species that live there.
