Why is the amazon rainforest special?


Question asked by: knowitall

What is special about the Amazon is the fact that it has the claim to fame of being the largest rainforest in the world.

It is also home to a massive selection of wild life and creatures that live there and relatively large areas of it are unspoilt by humans which goes for less and less places around the world these days.

It is also special as a great absorbed of carbon from the atmosphere and producer of oxygen, the combined effect of all the trees there being huge on regulating the level of oxygen in the atmosphere, though the level of oxygen in the atmosphere is steadily dropping from a high point millions of years ago.
