Green Tracks provides numerous opportunities for eco-travelers to visit the largest tropical rainforest in the world, the Amazon Rainforest. Amazonia embodies more than half of the surviving rainforests on earth. Parts of the rainforest reach out to nine different countries, including Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Bolivia, Peru, Guiana, Suriname, Venezuela, and Brazil. About 60 percent of Brazil is covered by the Amazon Rainforest.
Although most people are aware of the Amazon's existence, very few actually know of its unique biodiversity and spectacular ecosystems. Taking a trip with Green Tracks to the Amazonian rainforest will provide you with a glimpse of the wonderful mystery and awe-inspiring life cycles within the Amazon. You will be privilege to views of magnificent wildlife unseen in any other part of the world. The canopy layer of the forest houses more than 500 mammals, 300 reptiles, hundreds of amphibians, thousands of species of birds, and millions of different types of insects!
As powerful as the beauty of the Amazon Rainforest is, it is just as fragile. Twenty percent of the forest has already been destroyed. Some of the land has been chopped down by logging companies and other areas have been cleared out or burned to make room for cattle ranches and mining operations. When the trees are destroyed, the animals, plants and insects are also lost. Sadly, he delicate life of the Amazon's ecosystems are also in danger from disrespectful visitors, which is why Green Tracks is dedicated to safe and eco-friendly adventure travel.
Another important part of the Amazon is the indigenous people who live there. In the past 500 years, the population of these people has dropped from millions to fewer than 200,000. Over 90 tribes of Amazonian Indians have disappeared since the early 1900s. Green Tracks' ecotours to the Amazon rainforest stress the importance of preserving and protecting this beautiful gift to our world, while offering visitors an experience like no other on Earth.
