The Yawanawá

Guardians of the Rio Gregorio territories in Acre, Brazil

The Amazon Rainforest is the world’s largest tropical rainforest and home to thousands of Indigenous people

Covering over 5.5 million square kilometres, it spans 9 countries in total: Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana. The Amazon Rainforest moderates local and global weather patterns releasing approximately 20 billion tons of moisture into the atmosphere daily.

One-quarter of all medicinal plants, many from the Amazon, are derived from tropical forests. Many medicinal plants of the Amazon Rainforest have not been documented yet. For the past 10 years, a new species has been discovered every 3 days in the Amazon. It is home to approximately 40,000 plant species and 1,300 bird species and counting.
