Climate Change

Amazon Rainforest Fires

Amazon Rainforest Fires

Fire has devastated more than 3,500 square miles of Brazil’s Amazon forest since January, an 85% increase from last year. The fires were largely intentionally set by humans engaged in rampant, illegal deforestation of the Amazon for agriculture, specifically for cattle ranching, as the global demand for meat is on the rise. This devastation has staggering consequences, from the destruction of local wildlife and wildlands to the global health of our planet.

Spring has sprung, all the flowers are in bloom, and shells are a clackin'! This winter has been cold and rainy at the Turtle Conservancy’s Conservation Center, and the turtles have had enough of it! They have had plenty of time to think about climate change and its implications for their future.
