The mists of the Amazon travel across oceans to fall as rain on America’s plains. Its lush forests pump out a fifth of the world’s oxygen, and store hundreds of years of carbon. From a world away, we desperately rely on everything the Amazon provides.
But right now, a record-breaking number of fires are burning across the Amazon. The forests’ skies are black with smoke and ash. The people — and wildlife — who call the Amazon home are running for their lives, and suffering the devastating health effects of smoke inhalation.
Right now, the California Air Resources Board is considering creating a program that will protect tropical forests. The entire world is counting on them taking action. Make sure they hear from you before it's too late!
