Hi Friends! The Amazon rainforest was formed about 55 million years ago and it's estimated the Amazon basin is home to approximately 390 billion trees. While the rainforest might seem a world away to most of us it is home to 1/5 of all freshwater on the earth, produces 20%of the atmosphere's oxygen, and has over 6 million different species wandering under its vast canopies. Without a mostly intact Amazon basin with it's regenerative qualities for oxygen, fresh waters, and medicine producing plants the world we live in would be a much different place. We, humans, humanity, are currently the biggest threat to the survival of the world's rainforests. We burn over 78 million acres per year and more than 50% of the is already gone. The land is then used for farming and cattle production. While this current use of the forest may solve a short term problem for the survival of the forest, it ignores the global implications of a diminishing resource. My teammates and I have teamed up with The Adventurists and Cool Earth to raise awareness and funds to help stop the mass destruction of this precious resource. Please consider a donation in any amount to help us reach our goal. Thanks for your help! Art, Julia, and Lori
