Save the amazon rainforest!

The Amazon Rainforest.

Located in South America, the Amazon Basin is 7,3 million square km wide. The Amazon Rainforest is about 6 million square km, and its majority is contained within Brazil (60% of the forest), Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana, 9 countries in total. Also known as Amazonia, the Amazon Rainforest is located in the area along the equator where the climate is hot and humid, some ideal conditions for a dense evergreen rainforest. This rainforest is one of Earth main source of oxygen.

 

The Amazon river has the highest discharge (from 70,000 to 280,000 m3/sec during flood season). From the Andes Apurimac where it starts all the way to the Atlantic it is 7025 km long and up to 10 km wide. It can be navigated up to Manaus.

The Amazon river and its tributaries (rio Negro, Japura, Purus, Madeira, Tapajos, Xingu, Araguaia, Tocantins) water the Amazonia from the Guianas plateau North, to the Andes West and the Brazilian plateau South.

 

Every four seconds, the equivalent of a football stadium disappears in Amazonia.

According to a study published by Science magazine, 42% of the Amazon rainforest could have virtually disappeared by 2020.  Yet, it is estimated that at least 60% of Amazonia must absolutely remain untouched for the survival of its own climatic and hydrological system. Below that threshold, what will be left of the forest will dry out and die. As a result, some researchers are warning that should no immediate action be taken to save the forest,  the point of no return could be reached within ten to twenty years.

 

In the last 10 years, the Amazon Rainforest lost 500,000 square km (about the size of France), which became pasture for cattle, or farmland for Soybean cultivation. The Brazilian Amazonia annual deforestation rate is the largest globally.
