Our world needs plants to breathe and create oxygen for us to survive. Indeed, out of the total amount of gases that compose our atmosphere oxygen is at 20.95%, which is pretty high.

As mentioned above, what brings oxygen into the air is not the human kind, neither are the different animals that populate the Earth. What creates oxygen and allows us to live, are the plants.

From the tiniest bush to the biggest forest; without greenery we would not be able to live on this planet.

Among the different types of vegetation, the biggest and most popular one on the surface of the world is the rain forest. Rain forests are called this way because they are characterized by high rainfalls, in a year, the rainfall could go over 450 centimeters! In addition to this, these forests are responsible for 28% of the world’s oxygen, so they are highly precious for the maintenance of the atmosphere.
