• Tropical rainforests are essential to life on earth, storing more carbon than any other biome. Challenges faced include changing weather patterns, habitat loss and loss of biodiversity and deforestation as well as increasingly prevalent forest fires and periods of drought.

  • A damaged area within the Brazilian state of Pará will host the Amazon rainforest round when Season 1 gets underway in 2021. This area on the banks of the mighty Amazon river represents ground zero for the Amazon’s two biggest issues; deforestation and wildfires. Tropical rainforests are essential to life on earth, absorbing and locking up vast amounts of carbon dioxide while releasing oxygen into the atmosphere, encouraging rainfall and filtering fresh water while providing food, fuel and medicines. They contain huge biodiversity, accounting for around half of all land species.

    THE PROBLEM
    With more land being cleared for agriculture, cattle grazing, timber and infrastructure, regions once occupied by great rainforests are more susceptible to droughts and forest fires – exacerbated by the extreme weather brought about by climate change. As a result, tropical rainforests are being lost at an alarming and accelerating rate.

    Extreme E Legacy
    Extreme E has pledged to work with The Nature Conservancy (TNC), which has more than 24 years of conservation experience across the Amazon and a deep understanding of the major drivers of deforestation in the region. The project has been selected by Francisco Oliveria PhD – our Amazon Scientist, a leading Brazilian conservation expert with more than 20 years’ experience working on Amazon issues for the Brazilian government, WWF and at the University of Cambridge.
