People, animals, and plants are in grave danger. The Amazon rainforest is burning down at an unprecedented rate.
The loss of rainforest is a problem that could speed up climate change; the rainforest is a significant contributor to CO2 reduction. In addition, the fires are endangering millions of species of animals and could displace approximately 1 million indigenous people.
At TLG we love our planet, and we are grieving the rainforest that has already burned, but we know there are measures we can take to help.
🌎 Lost Geographers, please join us in donating to groups that are helping defend the rain forest. Like the @RainforestActionNetwork
🌍 Buy products that are endorsed by the Rainforest Alliance like @patagonia
🌏 And most importantly, spread this message. Make the world take notice. Call your political leaders and let them know you are paying attention. Even if you don't live in Brazil, the more people that demand changes, the more likely it is to happen.
🌎 You can even sign petitions through organizations like @greenpeace
to help ensure the protection of the rainforest and the indigenous people who live there.
Now is the time Lost Geographers. Let's take care of the planet that takes care of us. 💚
