Thousands of volunteers are fighting against the wildfire to save the Amazon rainforest

Thousands of volunteers are fighting against the wildfire to save the Amazon rainforest

Locals of Amazan in Brazil continue to fight wildfires in the Amazon, one of the world’s most extensive forests.

The Brazilian government says more than 100 firefighters are working day and night with state-of-the-art firefighting equipment. The country’s president, Jair Bolsonaro, has been criticized for failing to control wildfires.

As the temperature and wind direction is not favorable, the fire is increasing instead of decreasing. In the first ten days of this month alone, about 10,000 new wildfires reported in the Amazon rainforest.

According to a government official, the number of fires has increased by 28 percent this year compared to July last year. Authorities fear that this could happen again in August-September as like the previous year.

The dry weather in Brazil has just begun. Environmentalists have warned that it will be impossible to bring the situation under control if the devastating wildfires are not brought under control now.
