The Amazon forest is the world’s most important basin and is home to the largest rainforest in the world. The Amazon, which extends in the northern part of South America, occupies 60% of the surface of the forests on Earth. More than half of the Amazon region is Brazil, the country most commonly associated with the forest.
Thanks to this, the planet has an irreplaceable green reserve, a lung that allows the exchange of oxygen and absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere. In addition to the fact that it is a unique ecosystem, it still needs to be investigated.

The rainforest lives on abundant equatorial rainfall. It is in fact only in agreement with the equator. Thanks to the great river and vegetation, the forest feeds the rains and creates a wetland of exceptional value. Thanks to the rain, the river and its tributaries feed on it and contribute significantly to the economy of the entire continent. The moisture in the forest affects the climate of the entire American continent, including California and Mexico.

Deforestation peaked in the 1990s and 2000s. The Brazilian government, recognizing the importance of the Amazon rainforest, has over the last decade managed to combat deforestation, set up more protected areas, improve surveillance, monitor the phenomenon from satellites and under pressure from environmental groups stand.

The natives live as fishermen and collectors with no less than 3,000 different types of fruit. They use 2000 in various applications, from nutrition to medicine.

The Amazon forest is considered the lungs of the planet, but in fact absorbs the same oxygen that it produces by the decomposition of plant organisms.
