Amazon Rainforest Day
This day is devoted to highlighting the importance of the Amazon Rainforest, which is often referred to as the Earth’s lungs due to its vital role in global climate regulation. Amazon Rainforest Day fosters knowledge and understanding about this unique ecosystem that houses an unparalleled diversity of flora and fauna, many of which are not found anywhere else in the world. This day also emphasizes the threats faced by the Amazon, primarily deforestation and forest fires, and promotes efforts to halt these destructive activities and pursue sustainable alternatives.
