Morocco's vulnerable cedar trees are being cut down illegally
Each month, our journalists go meet an Observer to take a closer look at events they have witnessed.
The Atlas cedar, a species that covers 134,000 hectares of land in Morocco and is already threatened by climate change, is a common target of illegal logging. But activists are now using social media to document the destruction of the trees.
The Observers program brings you the best amateur images from around the world, all verified by France 24 journalists. To see more reports from our Observers – and to become an Observer yourself! – head to our website: www.observers.france24.com/en.
