The Flora and Fauna of the Amazon Rainforest (2 minute read)

(Last Updated On: January 10, 2022)

The biodiversity of the Amazon rainforest is absolutely staggering. It’s 5.5 million km² covers 40% of South America and nine countries. It contains nearly 10% of all known wildlife species with new discoveries being made on average every three days. Amazonian tribes who have never been contacted are still being found in the very depths of the rainforest. It plays a critical part in stabilising the world’s climate and regulating global and regional carbon and water cycles. The weird wonderful, and sometimes dangerous, species of the Amazon are endlessly fascinating. To celebrate this vitally important cog of the planet’s biosphere, we’ve taken a look at the flora and fauna of this astonishing rainforest.


Overnight stays in the incredible Amazon Rainforest are included on a number of our Peru group tours.
