The world's largest rainforest, one of the dense and large forests, is located in Brazil. Very good news is being heard from the Amazon forest, which is called the Lung of the Earth (Amazon Rainforest).

In a ceremony organized on the occasion of Amazon Day, Brazilian Environment Minister Marina Silva said that in August this year, deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon declined by 66 percent. This decline has been recorded in August as compared to the same month last year. A year-on-year decline of 66 percent has been registered in July. The months of July and August are critical for the Amazon forests, as deforestation typically increases at this time of year with the onset of the dry season.

In August 2022, during the last term of far-right Jair Bolsonaro, 1,661 square kilometers of area was destroyed by deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon. This has been revealed through satellite monitoring by Brazil's Space Research Institute, INPE. Bolsonaro was held responsible for deforestation that occurred during 2019-2022. The reduction in deforestation this year reflects the determination of Brazil's President Lula da Silva administration compared to the previous government.
