The Amazonian jungle has an unparalleled biodiversity, with one in ten of all known species in the world represented within it. What is less known is that it is home to over 1 million Indians divided among around 400 tribes, each with its own language, culture and territory.
All Indians have a very spiritual relationship with the Amazon Rainforest, the world’s largest surviving tropical forest, which is believed to provide up to 20% of the planet’s oxygen.
The cultural and bio-diversity that still exists there is the result of tens of millions of years of evolution. In this case, protecting the rainforest really does mean saving the planet’s future and an enormous cultural heritage!
