LATA COMMENTS ON WILDFIRES IN AMAZON

At LATA, we are very concerned about the wildfires in the Amazon and the broader issue of deforestation, which is a worldwide problem. The Amazon is the largest tropical rainforest in the world and the largest river basis, home to 10% of all wildlife species we know. As well as being a vital absorber of carbon dioxide, the Amazon Rainforest provides an educational experience for travellers showcasing a unique ecosystem, immense geographical biodiversity and important cultural contrasts. Conserving the rainforest is essential to the protection of our planet and to ensuring that indigenous populations are able to benefit from their natural environment.
