The Amazon Rainforest has been called the greatest celebration of life on earth.
Hundreds of miles from civilization’s pollution, the forest thrives with more than 200,000 botanical species. “The diversity of plant species in the Amazon rainforest is the highest on earth. To date, some 438,000 species of plants of economic and social interest have been registered in the region, and many more have yet to be catalogued or even discovered.”
