The Amazon Rainforest
While the previous century has seen the destruction of more than two-thirds of the world’s tropical rainforests, the Amazon Basin of northern Peru has the best-preserved rainforest in the world. Ten percent of all species on Planet Earth live here. It has the highest biodiversity of any place on Earth, with an average of 750 plant and tree species per square kilometer. For example, there are 2500 species of butterflies here, 880 species of birds, and more than 3000 species of fish. The Amazon is home to legendary creatures like the pink river dolphin, the caiman, the anaconda and the jaguar. More than 300 species of monkeys reside in the Amazon rainforest.
The Amazon River itself is the mightiest river on earth. It discharges more water into the ocean than the next seven greatest rivers combined. It contains one-fifth of all the fresh water on earth. It drives its own climate system and plays a significant role in the world’s climates.
