While all eyes are on Brazil for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games, Conservation International is focused on the country for another reason: The Amazon. As our world’s greatest rainforest and a vital life support system, its survival is imperative as it holds 30% of the solution to climate change. Sadly, it is facing the threat of deforestation. In 2015 alone, an area nearly twice the size of the Grand Canyon was clear cut. As one of CI’s most impactful Nature is Speaking videos, it drives home how humans cannot live without forests, period. "Nature doesn't need people. People need nature."
Kevin Spacey is the Rainforest.
