Amazonia represents the lungs of the Earth - fight to save it!

The once mighty Amazon is systematically being destroyed & we are about to see the huge price we will pay in so many ways ! Deforestation, pollution, abuse of human & animal rights, loss of plant species, many still undocumented ! All this as Governments fail - miserably & big business exploits the aministrations' failure to act ! The ramifications of a "lost Amazon" will ripple round the World in the years to come. Coming generations will rightly cane us !

The Amazon holds the key to future medicinal advances & mankind is squandering the ability to learn from nature. Many medical advances have been made by using plant &, indeed, animal extracts in the past. Mankind is going to lose this ability in destroying so much of the natural World. It's nuts !
