The Biggest Forest in the World: Amazon

Deforestation continues at an alarming rate that are significantly to the ongoing loss of biodiversity and climate change. 

However, human knows that the Forests are “Planet’s Lung” that need to be protected but they seem to not care about it. The trees absorb carbon dioxide from the environment for photosynthesis and emit oxygen, and that is the main sources of our oxygen to live. 

The lack of education of the importance of forests seems very lack, which is why we want to remind you that there is the biggest forest that we need to protect its existences, it is Amazon Forest. 


Amazon Rainforest 

Amazon Rainforest, alternatively, the Amazon jungle or Amazonia, is a moist broadleaf tropical rainforest is the number 1 most famous forest on earth in the South American Amazon. With its incredible 5,500,000 square kilometres, the Amazon Forest is the home to one in ten species existing on earth and most diverse forest and largest range of plants and animals in the world. 

It is fantastic to know about the biodiversity that lives in the Amazon. 

The Amazon is an impressive 55 million years old forest but now there are about 20% of its original population of flora and fauna are already lost because of the human activities. In recent years, these forests have suffered and is still suffering from ongoing deforestation, mismanagement and degradation. 

Deforestation isn’t the only reason the Amazon is changing. Global climate change is having major impacts on the Amazon rainforest. Higher temperatures in the tropical Atlantic reduce rainfall across large extents of the Amazon, causing drought and increasing the susceptibility of the rainforest to fire. 

In that case, we need to open our eyes and inform our friends and partners to do a little thing such as turning off the light when not in use, cycling to the nearby stores and use public transportation to reduce the impact of climate change that can impact to “Planet’s Lung”.
