Brazils north western state of Acre is roughly twice the size of Austria and the same size as Illinois state. Almost entirely covered by jungle, wild rivers and Amazon Rainforest, the state is one of the most environmentally conscious in Brazil, with sustainable development high on the governments agenda. Acres main livelihood comes from exporting rubber from sustainable forests, agriculture and cattle raising. Acres capital is Rio Branco (translated to White River), where much of the regions green tourism is based. From here tourists enjoy museums, visits to the rubber and brazil nut forests and an eclectic mix of architecture, people, creeds and customs due to its location on the borders of Peru and Bolivia. Acre boasts a university and many commercial activities, making it an economic centre for an otherwise largely undeveloped state. Other towns in Acre are located alongside the banks of rivers which form a major means of travel throughout the state.
