Show Your Love for the Amazon Rain Forest
By now many of you may have heard that the Amazon Rain Forest has been burning for many weeks without much coverage by the media. There have been more than 72,000 fires in Brazil in 2019, with more than half in the Amazon region. This is an 80% increase compared to the same period in 2018. Amazon Rain Forest conservationist believe the increase in fires is the result of illegal deforestation by cattle ranchers looking to clear the area for grazing cattle.
The Amazon Rain Forest is the largest rain forest on the planet, roughly half the size of the United States. Producing 20% of the oxygen in the earth’s atmosphere, the Amazon Rain Forest is often referred to as the planet’s lungs. It is home to many species of fauna and flora and is considered vital in slowing global warming.
