The guardians of the forest

Bushfires, floods and extreme temperatures dominate the news headlines lately and have one main cause: climate change. But what has climate change to do with the Amazon rainforest? Well, the Amazon is one of the biggest remaining rainforests on earth and is called the lungs of the world. Nowadays, the Amazon is threatened by deforestation. The forest is rapidly cut down to expand agricultural lands for coffee, palm oil and soy. Luckily, the native inhabitants do everything in their power to protect “their” Amazon.
