Last week we saw the awful reality of the Amazon wildfires FINALLY showcased on the World’s media. Due to the sheer size of the Amazon, this magnificent beast is our first line of defence against global warming and at the current rate of deforestation we are scarily near to the tipping point – that the Amazon will no longer function as a carbon sink.

 

With over 72,843 recorded fires this year alone, the state has now declared a state of emergency. This is a Global issue, one that is very close to our hearts. So,we wanted to share with you a few things that you can do to help.
