The Amazon rainforest covers over 1 billion acres and stretches between Brazil, Venezuela and Colombia, as well as the Eastern Andean region of Ecuador and Peru.
On top of that, it is estimated that 90% of the plants in the rainforest have not been studied by modern science, which means the cure to diseases like cancer or Aids could be growing there and we don’t even know it.
More than half of the world’s estimated 10 million species of plants, animals and insects live in the Amazon rainforest.
Unfortunately, in the course of the past 12 years, the size of the rainforest has decreased tremendously. Find out more about rainforest degradation in this interesting infographic.
