Amazon Rainforest (http://aloeterranourishments.us)
The Amazon Rainforest is the world’s largest tropical rainforest, spanning over 5.5 million sq. kilometers. Often referred to as “the lungs of the earth”, the Amazon produces more than 20% of the world’s oxygen. It is home to 44,000 plant and animal species, as well as over 2.5 million different insects! An estimated 500 indigenous tribes call this rainforest home, amounting to over 250,000 people who rely on its existence for survival.
Due to the many factors of deforestation that affects the Amazon there is lack of sustainability for the people who call the rainforest home. The Amazon has lost up to 20% of it's forest over the past 40 years and is in need of reforestation. One Tree Planted has created this non-profit campaign to plant trees in the Amazon in order to increase sustainiability to all the regions that call the rainforest home.
Donations toward the Amazon rainforest go a long way. Planting trees here not only offers a chance to help all the millions of species that rely on the Amazon, but also employs local tree planters and help fight against poverty in a handful of Latin American countries. Donate today to keep the earth’s lungs pumping!
Together we can make the difference!
