The Amazon is the world's largest tropical rainforest, encompassing a significant amount of biodiversity, including living plants and a host of animal species that are in their own right, economically important on global scales. Producing 20% of the world’s oxygen, this azure jungle is described as ‘the lungs of the planet’ – without it, we lose a crucial part of the world’s life support system.
Deforestation of the Amazon also brings many unruly consequences, such as, air and water pollution, soil erosion, the release of carbon dioxide and the eviction of indigenous Indian tribes, with the undeniable concern of plant and animal extinction. ‘’Therefore, we should stand in solidarity with international activists, charities and organisations that are fighting for the rights of the rainforests indigenous people, and to raise awareness of the significant effects of global warming’’.
Each year, thousands of square miles of rainforest are cut down, releasing global warming pollution in the form of carbon dioxide and methane from burning and decaying vegetation. Such processes make the forest more vulnerable to drought, loss of trees and release of pollution. Tribal communities remain at the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, ensuring that they and their land remain respected during work, farming and sourcing products.
Charitable organisations like the Survival International fights alongside indigenous people to amplify their voices and put families in control of wildlife protection. Discover more via their Instagram.
