The amazon rainforest in this essay i will give you some fun facts if you don’t know these things well you can thank me let me give you an example The Amazon is the world's largest tropical rainforest. Covering over 5.5 million square kilometres, it's so big that the UK and Ireland would fit into it 17 times! Well if you like that  well you will enjoy my essay.  

 

 

The amazon rain forest in this paragraph to tell you the location of the amazon rainforest. The Amazon rainforest, covering much of n South America and covers 2.1 million square miles of land. Brazil has%, Peru has 13%, and Colombia has 10% while other countries have very small parts of the rainforest within their border these data   support the amazon location

 

 

The amazon rainforest problems is.Rainforests around the world are continuously cut down to make room for raising crops, particularly soy, and cattle farming. This has been exacerbated in recent years, as many parts of the world have emerged from poverty such as in Asia, Africa and South America.Fish are the main source of food and income for many Amazonian people. The amount of fish needed to feed a growing population, however, may lead to overfishing, especially if large industries are harvesting fish in order to export to foreign markets. In many parts of the Amazon, large, industrial trawlers armed with gill nets scoop up entire schools of fish in an entirely unsustainable attempt to bring food to market.Many people illegally hunt animals to sell as food and raw materials for finished products. Animals, like the giant Amazon river turtle, the "Paiche," and the Amazon Manatee are vanishing from the wild.Large hydroelectric projects, funded by international aid and development organizations like the World Bank, have led to widespread forest loss. Besides inundating large tracts of rainforest (dams in the Amazon are generally ecologically inefficient because large tracts of forest are flooded due to the flatness of the basin) and killing off local wildlife, the dams have the effect of destroying aquatic habitats and affecting fish populations, displacing indigenous peoples, and adding carbon to the atmosphere (as the submerged wood rots).

The animals in the amazon forest in this paragraph i am going to tell you about  what animals live in the amazon rainforest. Rainforests are tremendously rich in animal life. Rainforests are populated with insects (like butterflies and beetles), arachnids (like spiders and ticks), worms, reptiles (like snakes and lizards), amphibians (like frogs and toads), birds (like parrots and toucans) and mammals (like sloths and jaguars).The Amazon Rainforest, also known as the Amazonia or the Amazon Jungle, is the largest rainforest on earth and is home to 427 mammals (e.g. jaguar,sloth, and river dolphin), 1,300 birds (e.g. macaw ), 378 reptiles (e.g. anaconda and Jesus lizard ), more than 400 amphibians (e.g. glass frog and poison dart frog.                                    

In this paragraph i am going to tell to some fun facts about the amazon rainforest At 6.9 million square kilometers (2.72 million square miles), the Amazon Basin is roughly the size of the forty-eight contiguous United States and covers some 40 percent of the South American continent. The "Amazon rainforest" — which defined biogeographical includes the rainforest in the Guianas, which technically are outside the Amazon Basin — covers 7.8-8.2 million sq km (3-3.2 million sq mi), of which just over 80 percent is forested. Deforestation in the Amazon rainforest has been declining since 2004, mostly due to the falling deforestation rate in Brazil. There are a variety of reasons for the decline, including macroeconomic trends, new protected areas and indigenous territories, improved law enforcement, deforestation monitoring via satellite, pressure from environmental groups, and private sector initiatives.The Amazon is the world's biggest rainforest, larger than the next two largest rainforests — in the Congo Basin and Indonesia — combined.

The amazon rainforest in this essay i showed you fun facts and what animals live in the rainforest and the location of the rainforest and the problems in the rainforest I hope you enjoy my book
