The Wider Image: God's will or ecological disaster? Mexico takes aim at Mennonite deforestation 
Beekeepers, Naida Graciela Ek Chuc (L) and Marielin Naalek (R), extract honey from a hive outside their house in Campeche state, Mexico, March 4, 2022. In Campeche, where Mennonites arrived in the 1980s, around 8,000 sq km of forest, nearly a fifth of the state's tree cover, has been lost in the last 20 years, with 2020 the worst on record, according to Global Forest Watch. The clearance contrasts with the traditions of indigenous farmers who have rotated corn and harvested forest products such as honey and natural rubber since Maya cities dominated the jungle from the Yucatan to El Salvador.
