The Amazon Rainforest





The Amazon rain forest produces more than

20% of the world’s oxygen supply.

The Amazon River pushes so much water into the Atlantic Ocean that,
more than one hundred miles at sea off the mouth of the river;
one can dip fresh water out of the ocean.
The volume of water in the Amazon River is greater than the next eight largest rivers
in the world combined and three times the flow of all rivers in the United States
