A couple of months ago, all celebrities around the globe were tweeting out about the Amazon Rainforest, advocating for a helpless minority in Brazil who the world fell silent for. The time-lapse above shows the deforestation of the amazon as humans have cut down trees and let fires burn out in that general area. Many activists believe that the president of Brazil is allowing the fires in the Amazon to spread in hopes of wiping out the indigenous groups living in that area but nothing has yet been confirmed. Activists, celebrities, and ordinary humans alike were in uproar for weeks to bring attention to the Amazon rainforest and the wildlife that was sacrificed due to the fires.
