Amazon has been the source of many fictions, movies and many people love the secrecy and exotica associated with this forest.

Last Tuesday, the #PrayForAmazonia went viral on the internet and that is how many people got to know about the incident. The reason for the fire is still not known clearly and many people are wondering whether it is a natural cause or something done with human intervention. However, many people are in the view that the destruction to Amazon took place on a larger scale basically under the Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro. He has made the opening for co-operating sectors to exploit this green heaven and this fire is the latest horrible situation of Amazon.

Many people are wondering about the lack of media coverage given to the incident. Even before this three-week-long massive fire, several situations of deforestations have been reported and if this situation continues, not only the Brazilians but also the whole world would suffer for sure.
