    The Amazon rainforest is located in South American and is in nine South American countries: Brazil, Columbia, Peru, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, the Guianas, and Suriname. This is about two thirds of South America. More than 20% of Earth’s oxygen is produced in this area, thus the name “Lungs of the Planet.” With 2,5 million square miles, the Amazon represents 54% of the total rainforests left of the planet, but an estimated number of 2,700 million acres of the rainforest are burned each year.

    Rainforest all over the world are being lost at an astounding rate; an area of a rainforest the size of a football field is being destroyed each second.
