This is a record since 2013. Since January, 75,336 forest fires have been recorded in Brazil. A disastrous ecological situation that calls for real awareness at the international level. Experts explain that these fires are mainly due to deforestation for farming and livestock. Soldiers and planes have been mobilized to put an end to this crisis. According to the Brazilian National Institute of Space Research (INPE), 1663 new fires broke out between Thursday and Friday. The images of the "lung of the planet" caused a great deal of emotion on a world scale.

390 billion. This is the number of trees that make up the Amazon rainforest that spans seven countries in Latin America. The green lung of the planet has a vital role in stabilizing the climate through its storage capacity of nearly 120 billion tonnes of carbon. Fires compromise the production of oxygen by forests, increasing pollution and reducing their CO2 storage capacity. The "carbon sink" is in the grip of the flames threatening the survival of 50 to 70% of the world's biodiversity.

The Amazon in figures
The territory hosts a quarter of the world's species. According to the organization of the Amazon Cooperation Treaty (OTCA), there are 30,000 species of plants, 1,500 birds, 2,500 fish, 500 mammals and 2.5 million insects. 34 million people have been living in the "green desert" for at least 11,000 years. Among them, three million natives constituted 420 tribes. According to WWF, 20% of the Amazon rainforest has disappeared in 50 years. A global ecological crisis caused by massive deforestation of the "green lung" of the planet.

Massive deforestation
The disappearance of more than a fifth of the territory is mainly due to massive deforestation. These include agricultural soybean production, construction of hydroelectric dams and road infrastructure, the mining industry, forest fires and timber traffic. Since July, deforestation is gaining momentum. According to the real-time detection system of deforestation, it would be four times higher than that of July 2018. 2254 square km of forests were destroyed last month, 278% more than July 2018. Many Brazilian scientists attribute aggravation of this phenomenon with the inauguration of Jair Bolsonaro, president since January. NGOs call for the cessation of the territory's productivist policy.

Productivist politics
Several solutions have been proposed by the NGOs that call for a real awakening of consciences both governmental and societal. For associations active in the field, it is about changing the agricultural model to preserve this world heritage of biodiversity. According to Clara Jamart, who is in charge of the campaign for forests for Greenpeace, the productivism in livestock is the main trigger of this ecological crisis. "Brazil must stop removing environmental protection measures. Jair Bolsonaro has a real desire to undo what was done, when it was not enough. "It is imperative to introduce proactive and binding measures," says the head of the NGO. But these provisions not only commit Brazilian governance or the world economy but also individual behaviors.

Meat consumption
The main reason for massive deforestation is the import of soybeans on an international scale, mainly used to feed livestock. By reducing its consumption of meat, we participate in the decrease of the productivist policy in these territories strongly threatened by deforestation. Buying wood from certified sources also helps stop this devastating phenomenon for the Amazonian forests. Supporting local people by consuming fair trade products such as guarana or palm hearts is also an individual initiative to have an impact on this ecological disaster. Signing petitions and supporting NGOs active in the field can collectively impact the preservation of our green lung and the indigenous peoples who live there.
