The biggest environmental issue faced by Brazil is the deforestation of the Amazon rainforests. The Amazon rainforests are known as the ‘lungs of the world’ because they generate a large amount of oxygen. Destruction of these forests have also resulted into the loss of habitat of wild animals. Degradation of environment is also caused due to slash and burn agriculture, industrialisation and growing pollution.
India also face environmental issues due to deforestation, growth of population and urbanisation. Many species of wild life in India are on the verge of extinction because of poaching, pollution, deforestation and illegal mining. ‘Cheetahs’, the fastest running land animals have already become extinct in the country.
