The wonderful forest has recently discovered hundreds of new species. Over two years researchers have dived into the depths of the forest to explore what it has to offer.

Between May 2000 and August 2005, Brazil lost more than 132,000 square kilometres of forest—an area larger than Greece—and since 1970, over 600,000 square kilometers (232,000 square miles) of Amazon rainforest have been destroyed.

Due to deforestation, many animals lose their homes and become extinct before we even get to know that they existed. We take a look at the greatness of the rainforest and why is it so important that we conserve the Amazon.
