Didn't you know? The Amazon Forest, home to 1 million Indigenous people and 3 million species, has been burning for more than two weeks straight.
The largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check, which is one of the reasons of the wildfires!
We often forget that we are nature, when we don't care about nature, we literally don't care about ourselves because are are connected with nature. Nature needs more than our prayers. It needs our actions, our care!
Please share and let everyone knows where we are today, nature is what we all have in common.
What can we do about that? - As an emergency response:
- Donate to frontline Amazon groups working to defend the forest and become a supporter of the Rainforest Alliance’s community forestry initiatives across the world’s most vulnerable tropical forests, including the Amazon; this approach is by far the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires, but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between the communities and the public and private sectors.
- Stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers.
- When election time comes, VOTE for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinking policy.
But what can we do for a long-term care in order to avoid crisis like this? How to take care of our mother earth?
It all starts with taking care about ourselves and the nature around us! - Adopt products made from eco-friendly materials.
- Experience with solar energy as a power source over electricity.
- Develop measures to encourage use of bicycles for short distance travel.
- Car pooling can be an effective solution for those without an option.
-Promote CNG over other traditional, market-dominating petroleum based fuels.
- Plant a tree to celebrate every healthy year of your life.
- Focus more in pure natural food to encourage companies to product pure natural food for the consumer.
Please help spread the awareness 🖤
this place is really worth a visit😍 its only a 10 minute drive away from lake Bled, and if you dont have access to the car, there is a pretty cheap shuttle bus that runs several times a day 🚌💨 ...
A record number of fires have been recorded this year in Brazil’s Amazon.* Lots of you have been asking @bbcminute what’s happening. Swipe right to find out more!
Brazil’s President, Jair Bolsonaro, has suggested that non-governmental organisations (NGOs) had started fires in the rainforest, but admitted he had no evidence for this claim. He also says his government lacks the resources to fight the fires.
Smoke from fires in Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay has traveled thousands of miles and blanketed major cities.
Scientists agree that all of these fires are manmade. Farmers deliberately start fires to clear land for crops and cattle. A number of states ban the practice during the dry season, when the blazes may accidentally spread.
The fires are contributing to deforestation, which is also on the rise. Conservationists blame President Jair Bolsonaro for inflammatory rhetoric that may encourage loggers and developers to clear even more land.
* That’s according to the National Institute for Space Research.
