The Amazon Rainforest has been on fire for almost 3 weeks!!
Almost 73,000 fires have been recorded in the Amazon Rainforest this year alone. Almost twice the 2018 total and a record high. These fires are caused by humans, when farmers use fire to clear the land for agriculture. With the Amazon Rainforest being responsible for 20% of the world’s oxygen supply, over 20% of the world’s fresh water supply, and home to 30% of the world’s species this is now an international crisis. It is time we, as individuals, act to preserve our earth’s lungs.
