Amazonia represents the lungs of the Earth - fight to save it!
The once mighty Amazon is systematically being destroyed & we are about to see the huge price we will pay in so many ways ! Deforestation, pollution, abuse of human & animal rights, loss of plant species, many still undocumented ! All this as Governments fail - miserably & big business exploits the aministrations' failure to act ! The ramifications of a "lost Amazon" will ripple round the World in the years to come. Coming generations will rightly cane us !

To many, the Amazon appears to be "just a lot of trees" when, in fact it is a whole living entity! This includes the rich "blend" of tree species, habitat for a huge number of animal species, a treasure trove of plants many holding medicinal cures, etc. Our value system needs reassessing!
