Because it is home to anacondas weighing over three hundred pounds, Goliath birdeater tarantulas with a leg span the size of your face, and electric eels who have enough voltage to stun a horse, you might think the Amazon is a place that can cause more harm than good. But you'd be wrong...

Considered the "lungs of the world," the Amazon provides a full fifth of the world's oxygen, and every year unsustainable human practices destroy 2.7 million acres of it. What can be done to help? That's where Project Piaba comes in.
