The Federal Police launched the second phase of Operation Exodus on November 25. Twelve timber companies were suspended for 120 days and about R$ 6 million of funds were blocked for each of the companies. The purpose of the operation was to dismantle a criminal organization dedicated to the illegal exploitation of wood from the Indigenous Lands of Rondonia, especially the Tubarao-Latunde Indigenous Territory in the municipality of Chupinguaia. The environmental damage found exceeds the amount of R $ 50 million, according to an expert report, generated from the illegal removal of hardwoods such as Ipê, Peroba, Cerejeira, Jequitibá, Angelim and Sucupira, resulting in the deforestation of thousands of hectares.
