Disastrously, the Amazon Rainforest is burning at a VERY fast rate, currently at more than 72 thousand fires at once!!
According to scientists, fires are not unusual in the dry country. (Brazil) But this amount is much more than the normal. Unfortunately, not all the fires are natural, some are being made on purpose to clear land.
The Amazon rainforest is also known as the lungs of the earth because 20% of the world's oxygen is made by the Amazon, so not only will it threaten a huge amount of animals and probably drag them down to extinction, but it will also stop the worlds biggest breathing system and possibly start making the opposite impact on earth.
But guess what, you can help.
