• One single pond in a Brazilian rainforest can sustain a greater variety of fish than there are found in
   all of Europe’s rivers

• One single rainforest reserve in Peru is home to more species of birds than the entire United States

• One single tree in Peru was found to harbor forty-three different species of ants, which is a total
   equal to the entire number of ant species in the British-Isles

• Scientists have found that between 50 to 90 percent of all the Earth’s species live in the tropical
  rainforests, even though they cover less than two percent of the total surface of the earth
