The lungs of the Earth are in flames. 🔥 The Brazilian Amazon—home to 1 million Indigenous people and 3 million species—has been burning for more than two weeks straight. There have been 74,000 fires in the Brazilian Amazon since the beginning of this year—a staggering 84% increase over the same period last year (National Institute for Space Research, Brazil). Scientists and conservationists attribute the accelerating deforestation to President Jair Bolsonaro, who issued an open invitation to loggers and farmers to clear the land after taking office in January.
The largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check.
The Amazon needs more than our prayers. So what can YOU do?
✔ As an emergency response, donate to frontline Amazon groups working to defend the forest.
✔ Consider becoming a regular supporter of the Rainforest Alliance’s community forestry initiatives across the world’s most vulnerable tropical forests, including the Amazon; this approach is by far the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires, but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between the communities and the public and private sectors.

✔ Stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers.
✔ Be a conscious consumer, taking care to support companies committed to responsible supply chains. Eliminate or reduce consumption of beef; cattle ranching is one of the primary drivers of Amazon deforestation.
✔ When election time comes, VOTE for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinking policy.

"Infinity pool in Bali 80m above the ocean😱. Could you imagine seeing waves crashing against the rocks 80m below your feet while you're swimming in this pool? It was definitely the craziest pool we've ever been in." 🇮🇩

The Amazon Forest has been burning for 3 weeks and nobody is saying a word... It is one of the largest rainforest in the world, and also one of the wettest places on Earth. 💧
Siberia, one of the coldest places on Earth, is also on fire. ❄️
That aint normal.
Climate change is for real and our planet is burning up. Humans are the cause of this deadly fever. #PrayforAmazonia #PrayforSiberia

"During my trip in search for fireflies in Japan we've visited some other beautiful places at Kyushu island. Among one of them - Takachiho gorge! Locals take little boats and cruise just under the waterfall with steep basalt columns around. " 🇯🇵

An exciting activity that the Trip of Wonders’ explorers noted as one of the most unforgettable experiences is diving with the whale sharks in the whale shark point. These gigantic creatures may appear scary at first but if you respect the code of conduct for whale shark interactions, then be prepared to be amazed by their grace! 🇹🇭

“Can you feel the joy of this moment?! One of those nights that I’ll forever be grateful for!” 🇨🇦 For most visitors, this vividly colored lake is Yoho’s most unmissable sight. Ringed by forest and silhouetted by impressive mountains, including the iconic profile of Mt Burgess to the southeast, it’s a truly beautiful spot.

Who would you want to experience this sunset with ? 🇺🇸 « Last night it started pelting rain and mid-sprint to the car I hesitated. “Stay!” I yelled to @kailocey.
“What?!” “STAY! Let’s dance!”
So we did. And the sun blazed from behind the clouds and it was still raining but we forgot why we would ever run from this. »
