Brazil's security forces will fight deforestation in the Amazon. The world's largest rainforest is losing too many trees. This could increase in 2020. Deforestation in the Amazon doubled in January. The Amazon is called "the lungs" of the planet. It is important in changing CO2 into oxygen.

Police with military training will be in the security force. They find and stop illegal loggers. There was a big increase in illegal logging in 2019. Regional governments must also change. Some are selling the forest to developers. This is increasing the speed of deforestation. The governments are not replanting enough trees in the jungle.
