The Amazon Rain Forest, one of Earth's most important filters, is currently burning down at an alarming rate and hardly any news outlets are reporting on it. Many Brazilians are blaming President Jair Bolsinaro for "encouraging loggers and farmers to clear the land" since taking office in January, according to the BBC.
People on Twitter have been bringing light to the devastating situation under the hashtags 'Amazon Rain Forest' and 'Pray for Amazonia.'
