The Plants, Animals and People of the Amazon Rainforest

Norman Asch

The Amazon Rainforest spreads to nine countries in the southern American part of the Globe.  It occupies most part of the Amazon Basin and it makes up more than half of the entire rainforest on earth today.  The Amazon rainforest is home to millions of fauna and flora, many of which are and not found in another location anywhere in the world. Some of the endangered species of plants and animals can also be found in the Amazon Rainforest.

Norman AschBe that as it may, the Amazon Rainforest is not home to only plants and animals; the rainforest equally accommodates up to a million of Indians from up to 400 tribes, many of whom never have any contact or association with the outside world but live in recluse of the forest, associating only with members of their tribe, other tribes and also the wild animals that can be found in the forest.

Some of the tribesmen, however, associate with the outside world and benefit from the modern day education and healthcare that such an association has to offer.   Recent studies show that up to 50 tribes among the resident Indians in the Amazon Rainforest had never associated or contacted anyone or anything outside the rainforest; each of these tribes also has its culture and language.

The Amazon Rainforest is blessed with up to 5 million insects, plants and animal species; that is quite a lot you will agree.  You can get to learn more about these species of living things in the Amazon Rainforest by visiting Norman page at https://soundcloud.com/normanasch/norman-asch-birds-chirping-in-the-amazon.
