At Yobetit, we would like to help this cause and protect the Amazon rainforest by committing ourselves to give away one tree for every deposit made by players between 26th and 31st August.
The Brazilian Amazon rainforest has seen a record number of fires this year but most of them occurred during the past two weeks. The number of repercussions that the fire has brought and will bring on the Brazilian nation, as well as our planet as a whole, is unprecedented.
A fire of this size in a place like the Amazon rainforest commonly referred to as the ‘planet’s lungs’, has a considerable effect on the Earth’s atmosphere as this is the place that can produce up to 20% of the oxygen that we breathe.
The Amazon is home to some of the most fascinating species of fauna and flora. It is also estimated to be home to approximately 200 million head of cattle, and is the largest exporter in the world, supplying about one-quarter of the global market.
Being the largest rainforest on the planet, it is also considered vital in the fight against global warming.
Unfortunately, this is something that happens almost every year with fires spreading out within the forest now almost becoming normality. However, when comparing last year’s 40,000 fires between January and August with the 74,000 fires for the same period, it shows the extent of how much worse the situation is this year.
The Amazon rainforest has been fire-resistant for much of its history because of its natural moisture and humidity, but as NASA has clarified, drought and human activities are causing wildfires.
Join us in replenishing the Brazilian rainforest by placing your deposit between 26th and 31st August. We appreciate your help!
