This Number.1 Superstar Goes One Step Ahead To Save Amazon Forest !! SALUTE !!

Backed by military aircraft, Brazilian troops on Saturday were deploying in the Amazon to fight fires that have swept the region and prompted anti-government protests as well as an international outcry.

President Jair Bolsonaro also tried to temper global concern, saying that previously deforested areas had burned and that intact rainforest was spared. Even so, the fires were likely to be urgently discussed at a summit of the Group of Seven leaders in France this weekend.

Some 44,000 troops will be available for “unprecedented” operations to put out the fires, and forces are heading to six Brazilian states that asked for federal help, Defense Minister Fernando Azevedo said. The states are Roraima, Rondonia, Tocantins, Para, Acre and Mato Grosso.

Hollywood superstar and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio who has raised a question over the lack of media coverage of the ongoing fire at the Amazon rainforest, has exhibited an excellent gesture for the disaster occured.

His environmental initiative called Earth Alliance has pledged $5 million which is Rs.35 crores , towards the preservation of the Amazon rain forest following the wildfires.

The new organisation’s emergency Amazon Forest Fund is working to support local partners and indigenous communities in their efforts to protect the sensitive habitats within the Amazon, reports variety.com. The funds will be donated to five local organizations.

According to the fund’s website, more than 72,000 fires have been reported by Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research (INPE) – a sharp growth from 2018’s 40,000 fires, which can largely be attributed to an unprecedented surge in deforestation by cattle operations and feed crops.

The alarming wildfires have also sparked widespread outrage online, prompting a number of celebrities to use their social media platforms to raise awareness.

“The largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check,” DiCaprio had written on Instagram.
