The article features the Amazon rain forest in South America. It states that the Amazon is the largest rain forest in the world but is facing trouble as loggers cut down and burn its trees. Animals at the Amazon include anteaters, toucans and monkeys. Several types of trees can also be found at the Amazon. To save the Amazon, Brazil has created laws against cutting down trees and groups such as the Rainforest Action Network (RAN) are also protecting the Amazon.
