About our Amazon Rainforest news

Latest news on the Amazon Rainforest, also known as the Amazon Jungle or Amazonia, the world's largest tropical rainforest, spanning over 6.7 million square kilometres (2.7 million square miles) in South America. It is home to an immense biodiversity, including an estimated 390 billion individual trees, 16,000 species of plants, 2.5 million insect species, and thousands of animal species, many of which are endemic to the region. The rainforest is primarily located in Brazil, which holds about 60% of the forest, but it also extends into Peru, Colombia, and several other countries. The Amazon River, the world's second-longest river, flows through the heart of the rainforest, providing water and nutrients to its vast ecosystems. The Amazon Rainforest plays a crucial role in regulating the Earth's climate by absorbing large amounts of carbon dioxide and producing about 20% of the world's oxygen. However, the rainforest faces ongoing threats from deforestation, climate change, and human activities, which endanger its biodiversity and ecological balance.
