Amazon Rainforest

1. It’s huge Two and a half million square miles, to be precise. The world’s largest rainforest Diversity is off the charts,but Quite a few humans live there too....

2. It’s not really the lungs of the earth The rainforest pumps out a staggering 20% of the world’s oxygen each day,its decomposing plant matter also puts out roughly the same amount of CO2 as well

The majority of the oxygen we breath actually comes from microorganisms throughout the world’s oceans.

3.It’s disappearing 1.5 acres of the Amazon vanishes every single second and with it an average of 137 species become extinct each day.

Deforestation in the Amazon alone accounts for 30% of global carbon emission, and if things continue the way they are, there won’t be anything left in 40 years

4. It’s really dark at the bottom Amazon, the forest floor is almost completely black as only 1% of sunlight can make it through the thick canopy.

5.The longest river. Nile is the world’s longest river. However, Amazon river is the biggest river by volume, pumping out a staggering 55 million gallons of water into the Atlantic per second.
