BOLSONARO IS KILLING THE RAINFOREST

The Amazon region is home to the largest rainforest in the world and the richest river system. The Amazon River collects nearly 20 percent of the fresh water found on Earth, while the forest conditions and regulates the climate of the entire planet. 
The rainforest stores 90 to 140 billion tons of CO2, and its continued destruction causes huge quantities of this substance to be released into the atmosphere, with catastrophic consequences for the environment.
If today in the tourist maps of Peru we find the Yaguas National Park reported, it is also thanks to Liz Chicaje Churay, a Peruvian activist of the Bora people who for years fought so that this slice of the Amazon forest on the border with Colombia was protected from poachers. by illegal loggers and miners. Supported by her indigenous community, this 38-year-old woman had the courage, despite years of threats, to oppose the exploitation of these lands that the local population considers sacred, eventually gaining political support for the area to be declared a national park.
