The Amazon Rainforest in Google Street View

Google Street View is now in the Amazon Rainforest. As a result of a partnership with the Brazilian NGO Amazonas Sustainable Foundation (FAS), Google has taken pictures of around 500 km (more than 310 mi) of jungles, rivers and lagoons of the Amazon rainforest, from the forest floor to the upper canopy.

The first time that Google took pictures of the Amazon was in 2012. With this project everyone can visit this paradise from their computers.

An advantage for Google is that privacy won't be an issue in this project, but it is probable somebody will find unrecorded wildlife since distracted insects and birds are visible in the pictures.
