In the last 3 years, Brazil has lost in vegetation what corresponds to the state of Rio de Janeiro
A tree with about 20 meters is able to transpire about a thousand liters of water per day. The Amazon Forest releases approximately 200,000 m³/s of water particles into the air per hour, forming floating rivers. Only these numbers are able to strengthen the importance of conserving not only the largest tropical forest in the world, but all the nature that surrounds us.
In just three years Brazil has lost what would be enough land for an entire state - the famed Rio de Janeiro! And one of the largest biomes on Earth may soon follow suit if something isn't done quickly enough before its gone forever.
In 2021,189 hectares were lost due to trees being cut down in this famous forested region with an average 1-hectare minute!
The decimation of the Amazon Rainforest is a global concern not just because it represents nearly one-third (31%)of all tropical forests on Earth, but also due to its role in regulating climate change. Degradation and destruction have been witnessed over recent years with reports claiming that every second 18 trees are cut down throughout this large rainforest--a statistic which further adds up an already imbalance planetwide atmosphere!
When the biggest biome on earth is threatened so brutally, it has massive consequences.
The Amazon is in urgent need of help and we have a responsibility not only for its conservation, but mainly because it can't continue like this. The reforestation will provide life back into the forest while also helping us repay everything nature has given already!
