Help Stop the Burning of the Amazon Rainforest

September 3, 2019 News, Blog, Conservation

Recent reports show that more than 80,000 fires have broken out in the Amazon rainforest this year. Huge fires have also been burning across the border in Bolivia, also devastating the country’s tropical forest and savannah.

In the dry season (July to Oct.), forest fires are common. They are normally caused by natural events like lightning strikes. But this year, most are believed to have been started by farmers and loggers clearing land for crops or grazing.

The increase in fires threaten not just the rainforests but also communities, indigenous people and over 2000 species of animals who live around and within. There are many plants and animals that only exist in this part of the world. What will happen to the ecosystem if we lose them?

Want to get involved?

Share the plight of the Amazon. Sign this petition lobbying authorities to “set up an inquiry to investigate what is leading to the increase in fires in this region and hold the culprits to account.”
