Now or Never: Save the Amazon Rainforest

According to Statista, the Amazon Rainforest has lost a significant amount of forest cover since 1970 just in the Brazilian portion.

The Importance of the Amazon Rainforest

Because we don’t know how much time we have before we reach the point of no return, it is absolutely essential that we do everything we can now to prevent even more damage from happening. Scientists know that once we see visible signs of the Amazon turning into a savanna, it will be too late. This is our warning, and we need to take it seriously.

What Can We Do?

Reduce, reuse, recycle is still a great mantra, but it’s not enough to reach our goal by 2030. An individual can make a small impact on the climate crisis, but it isn’t going to make much of a difference if the majority continue to destroy the planet. Governments and citizens around the world need to work together to really make an impact.
