August 12, 2020; Brazil: In a recent incident, The 2019 Amazon rainforest as well as the Amazon biome within the nations- Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru and Columbia respectively.
The Amazon tropical rainforest, the world’s largest tropical forest having the widest range of biodiversity consisting of millions and millions of various plants and animal species accounts for one of the most beneficial ecosystems in the world.
According to various sources and statistical inferences, Amazon rainforest individually is capable of supplying 20% of Earth’s oxygen and can absorb as much as 25% of total carbon dioxide from the Earth’s atmosphere.
Recently, record-breaking fires had been ripping throughout the whole forest which led to an unprecedented number of fires all across the month of August.
The reports given by the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) clearly showed that more than over eighty thousand fires had been recorded. The primary cause behind the ripping fires is deeply associated with a sharp rise in deforestation. The INPE also found out that deforestation in the year 2019 hits the highest since the last eleven years.

August 12, 2020; Peru: Forests are referred to as the “natural lungs” of the Earth, especially the Amazon tropical rainforest, the world’s largest rainforest.
Every year, the rainforest experiences forest fires, both for human-made reasons as well as by nature. Unfortunately, In 2019, Wildfires in Amazon have surged by eighty-three percent so far as compared to the records of the year 2018 according to the data collected from Brazil’s Space Research Agency, National Institute for Space Research(INPE).
According to Alberto Setzer, a Senior scientist at INPE, about ninety-nine percent of forest fires are the consequences of humankind.
The unprecedented increase in the number of wildfires has been rising since the president of Brazil, Bolsonaro decided to use the forest area for agriculture, farming and mining, ignoring national concern.
However, as per other sources, Bolsonaro had recently fired the director of INPE claiming that INPE had claimed false allegations by showing an increased number of forest fires recorded for the year 2019.
A vast loss of biodiversity occurred as Amazon is the home to nearly twenty per cent of the planet's flora and fauna.

The smoke from the fires got so bad in Sao Paulo, the days appeared as dark nights. Those living in the nearby areas are bearing the immediate effects.
According to the reports provided by a massive global study based on air pollution levels, it was found that Brazil recorded the highest mortality rate. One of the primary reasons behind this was the composition of soot in the atmosphere of Brazil was twice as much as any other country.
One in ten of all plant and animal species consider Amazon rainforests as their natural habitat. As per reports, it has been estimated that nearly 12.43% of the total rainforest biodiversity has been lost and 23.67% are adversely affected.
This news became a hot topic in the world of politics as well. Brazil accounts for accommodating over 60% of the Amazon rainforest. These fires have brought international attention to the plight of Amazon as well as President Bolsonaro’s environmental policies.

According to INPE, a research Agency of Brazil, the annual forest loss for the year 2019 is nearly 9,762 square kilometres, which is the highest since the last eleven years.
The fire had been blazed upon since early January 2019. Approximately 906,000 hectares of forest area has been burnt in the forest fire. The reason behind this tremendously dangerous wildfire was the slash and burn approach adopted in order to practise agriculture. These kinds of activities have major adverse effects on climate change and global warming.
As per INPE, more than 80,000 fires had been reported at a 77% year-to-year increase rate. The forest fires also have created various environmental concerns and posed a severe threat to the endemic biodiversity as well as to the indigenous tribes inhabiting that area.
