I saw an article recently outlining the recent agricultural practices in the Amazon, and I think more acerage is being converted to soybeans than cattle ranching these days.
Ill try and dig up the article

It can be hard to find a way to make an individual contribution to conservation, especially on a global scale. Im a BIG proponent of starting local. There are a LOT of local habitat rehabilitation volunteer opportunities out there, so everyone with a few free weekend hours can do their part. Saying people are not conservation minded because they cant directly contribute to rainforest protection is unfair I think. I love the rainforest, but I don't have the money to contribute to direct habitat protection abroad, although I donate to WWF when I can
