The Amazon Rainforest


Importance of the Amazon Rainforest.

The Amazon Rain Forest has the most diversity than any other location in the world. About half of the world's species call the rainforest their home. This great habitat is being threatened by humans though. We are destroying it and all of the species that call it home. By doing this, we're destroying food chains, our medical resources, our industries, and more. We rely on the rainforest more than most people ever imagined.

Protecting the Amazon

The government for the most part protects the Amazon Rainforest however people still attack it. Brazil in particular has set up several laws regarding the protection of the Amazon and there are several preservation groups set in place.
