An obvious field of research would be the politics around the role of indigenous peoples in the defence of the rainforest. Several governments in the area have a long, and mostly ignominious, history of genocidal policies, aimed at enabling logging, farming and mining/oil companies to clear and exploit rainforest lands. The current government of Bolsanaro has been especially aggressive, but you could also explore the role of governments and corporations based in other countries in the whole ecocidal business. Here's a link that might prompt some further thoughts https://www.ecowatch.com/indigenous-...1#rebelltitem1

There are too many things to talk about it. You could give a nice introduction referring the Amazon rainforest as the largest tropical forest in the world, its geographic magnitude, the biodiversity which constitute nearly 40% of South America.You could mention the social-demographic problem involving the Ribeirinha community, the indigenous people and the farmers. The impact of large scale deforestation, mining activity and cattle ranching due to the global demand. The impact of wildfires to our planet.... Amazon rainforest has always been exploited through the years, however this problems has been severely sharpened to nearly obliteration in recent years.
Well, just some food for thought there. You'll find a lot of information online, just read as much as you can. I find this article a good starting point. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/e...worlds-oxygen/
So good luck!
