A native of San Antonio, Texas, John Cain Carter currently ranches with his in-laws in Mato Grosso, Brazil. After witnessing the unfathomable speed at which the Amazon rainforest is being cleared, John formed the “Alliance of the Land” conservation group to help slow the destruction of the rainforest and create a sustainable balance between agriculture and the rainforest ecosystem.
