On the Trails


Often referred to as our planet's lungs, Brazil's Amazon Rainforest stretches across 5.5 million square kilometres — representing a more expansive territory than the European Union. It's responsible for nearly 20% of the oxygen on earth. But this natural treasure, and vital resource, which has been around for millions of years, is currently under threat from logging and commercial expansion. The incredibly biodiverse Amazon is home to over 24 million people in Brazil alone, including a vast number of indigenous peoples.
