Amazon rainforest is home to a tenth of the world’s population of wildlife species, which translates to millions of reptiles, amphibians, insects, mammals, fishes and birds. A visit to this rainforest will bring you in close proximity to jaguars, caimans, parrots, gorillas, monkeys and several other rainforest animals. This part of the world is inhabited by so many animals and the Amazon River itself furthers the popularity of this region.
The Amazon region, consequent of the huge number of animals inhabiting this area also plays host to poachers preying on different kinds of animals. Consequently, efforts are being made by both governmental agencies and private organizations to protect as many of these animals as possible. The animals residing in the Amazon rainforest contribute their quotas to the ecosystem and are, therefore, need to be protected.
The consistent damaging activities of the poachers also threaten certain species of plants and animals making the Amazon rainforest their natural habitats, which necessitates the need to protect these animals and plants. Some organizations in an attempt to protect the endangered plant and animal lives in the Amazon from extinction hire forest guards and other security outfits to ensure a consistent protection of these animals.
The efforts to protect the wildlife in the Amazon are paying off gradually and there is hope that more will be achieved on the subject matter as the years roll by. The assurance arises from increased awareness and enhanced activities by more organizations to the need to protect Amazon rainforest’s wildlife.
