Declared in 2011 as one of the 'New 7 Wonders of Nature', the Amazon, also called the Amazon Rainforest or Amazon Jungle covers parts of Peru and other countries in South America. Peru has the second largest portion of the Amazon rain forest, after Brazil. The Amazon Rainforest is so large that it accounts for over half of the world's remaining rainforest.
