根据亚马逊合作条约组织(ACTO)数据统计,作为世界上最大的雨林,地球上四分之一的物种在亚马逊雨林被发现,有30,000种植物、2,500种鱼类、1,500种鸟类、500种哺乳动物、550种爬行动物和250万种昆虫。

As the world’s largest rainforest, a quarter of the Earth’s species are found there, namely 30,000 types of plants, 2,500 fish, 1,500 birds, 500 mammals, 550 reptiles and 2.5 million insects, according to the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organization (ACTO).

亚马逊雨林在控制地球二氧化碳水平方面也发挥着至关重要的作用。

据世界野生动物基金会(WWF)统计,各种绿色植物在光合作用过程中释放氧气的同时吸收更多的二氧化碳,能吸收900到1400亿吨二氧化碳, 这对于缓解全球变暖有很大的帮助。

The Amazon plays a crucial role in controlling the earth’s carbon dioxide levels. 

The forest acts as a carbon sink, absorbing more CO2 while releasing oxygen, and stocking 90 to 140 billion tonnes of CO2, which helps regulate worldwide global warming, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

但雨林日益增多的火灾和树木的滥砍滥伐正在降低这种吸收二氧化碳的能力。But the increasing forest fires and deforestation is reducing this capacity for absorbing CO2.火灾的原因是复杂的,但是拯救雨林被毁的斗争是永无止境的。The causes are complex and the fight to save the Amazon from deforestation is never-ending.
以下一些方法和生活方式的改变能很好地帮助热带雨林。Here are some ways and lifestyle changes that can help the rainforest.微信图片_20190930154413最有效的方法是向在一线工作的公益组织和团队捐款或参与一些捐款活动。无论是大型音乐会还是小学义卖,筹款都是最有效和最直接的。The best way you can immediately help is by donating to related organizations who are able to support communities on the front lines or participate in some donation activities. Whether it’s a huge concert or an elementary school bake sale, fundraising is a part of our heritage. Fundraising is the most effective and direct way.

购买本土工艺品或标有公平贸易(Fair Trade)标志的产品可以帮助提高生活在热带雨林地区或者贫困地区人们的收益。

公平贸易是有组织的社会运动,在贴有公平贸易标签及其相关产品之中,提倡关于全球劳工、环保及社会政策的公平性标准、以生产者的利益为先,而非中间商人的利润;其产品从手工艺品到农产品不一而足,这个运动特别关注那些自发展中国家销售到发达国家的外销。

Buying ethically sourced indigenous crafts or fair trade products are effective ways to help the rainforest.

Fair trade is an institutional arrangement designed to help producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions. Members of the fair trade movement advocate the payment of higher prices to exporters, as well as improved social and environmental standards.

木材和纸制品,如办公用纸、厕纸、家具等,大多由树木制成。减少不必要的使用,例如每一张纸两面使用,购物使用帆布袋,使用手绢和毛巾代替纸巾,避免使用一次性纸盘和纸杯等。

Wood and paper products such as office paper, toilet paper, furniture are mostly made from trees.

We suggest reducing our own wood and paper use. For example, use both sides of each piece of paper, use cloth bags at shops, use cloth napkins and towels, and avoid disposable paper plates and cups, etc.

在购买纸张用品时,选择不含树木成分的环保纸或再生纸。不含树木成分的环保纸是由废弃的稻草、红麻和大麻等农产品制成,所以没有一棵树被砍伐!

When purchasing paper products, choose tree-free paper alternatives or recycled paper if possible. Tree-free paper is made from agricultural products like waste straw, kenaf, and hemp, so not a single tree is cut down for its production!

少开车,乘坐公共交通以及调高1-2度空调都能减少二氧化碳的排放量,从而减少温室效应。

There are many things we can do to reduce our carbon footprint, like driving less, taking public transportation or adjusting your home thermostat.
