At this very moment, there are an estimated 72,000 fires raging throughout the Amazon Rainforest.
Since January 2019, these fires have increased by 84%, and the amount of land that has been decimated is now greater than the size of the entire European continent.
The time for action is NOW.
BEHIND THE FIRES
As climate change continues unabated, the temperatures get higher, and the forests get drier.
Deforestation and antiquated agricultural practices contribute to the decimation of Humanity's most valuable resource and all the creatures that inhabit it.
Slash and burn farming has become the norm over the last 30 years, but this year, in response to Bolsonaro's aggressive economic policies and blatant disregard for the environment, farmers have actively set the rainforest on fire.
On August 10th, a "Day of Fire" was announced, sparking uncontrolled wildfires throughout the Amazon Rainforest.
Indigenous tribes are being displaced and even approached with extreme violence by those who are intent on exploiting the Amazon Rainforest for short-sighted economic interests.
Humanity is uprising and you can join the movement to end this atrocity.
