Summary
During the last 35 years, the Madre de Dios region has lost around 100,000 hectares to deforestation caused mainly by the illegal mining of gold and other minerals. "Matricidio" shows us a hopeless scenario in the department of Madre de Dios, Peru, where the presence of man has generated an unfortunate impact on the environment and the animal species that inhabit it, as well as for the people who work in the mines because they risk their lives in a place where they have no security of anything.
