Nature lovers can now tour the world’s largest rainforests from the comfort of their own homes. To celebrate World Forest Day on Wednesday, Google released ground-level images of the Amazon’s Rio Negro Reserve as part of its Street View service.
Those interested in seeing the sights can take a virtual boat ride down the Rio Negro or along some of the Amazon River’s smaller tributaries. Google’s cameras also explored forest trails and the community of Tumbira, a remote village in the heart of the Amazon.
