The Amazon is the worlds largest rainforest. It spans over 2 million miles and provides a home for millions of people and various species of wildlife. Since the 1970’s the deforestation of the Amazon has spiraled out of control.
Humans have cleared significant areas of the forest to make room for crops and livestock, which in turn has serious consequences on the balance of our ecosystem.
A new initiative in Brazil is going to bring back 73 million trees to the Amazon. Reforestation is important to the survival of humans and the planet itself.
