Brazil: number of wildfires in the Legal Amazon 2005-2020

The Legal Amazon (or Amazônia Legal in Portuguese) is an area comprising most of the territory of nine Brazilian states in the Amazon basin: Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Maranhão, Mato Grosso, Pará, Rondônia, Roraima and Tocantins. Altogether, they occupy more than five million square kilometers. From January 1st to August 20th of 2020, over 50.4 thousand wildfire outbreaks were detected in that region, less than half the total amount recorded in the previous year. Between 2018 and 2019, the Legal Amazon's wildfire growth rate reached 40 percent.
