The stunning participants of the Miss Bum Bum World 2019 competition have held a steamy photoshoot in the jungle to protest against deforestation in the Amazon rainforest.
The international beauties posed in forests and jungles to protest against deforestation in the Amazon and some even dressed up in indigenous to celebrate Brazil’s National Day of indigenous Peoples tomorrow (Friday).

Valentim was snapped posing in a jungle while Correa dressed up in indigenous clothing, along with Laura.
Leia Lee, who reportedly lives in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, where a large section of the Amazon rainforest is located, told reporters: “People are dying, the indigenous people are being decimated.”
French contestant Laura told reporters the participants are protesting against Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s policies in the area.
She said: “We are against the attitudes of Bolsonaro’s government. If it continues like this, we are going to finish the Amazon and also the planet.”
Local media report Valentim, Correa, Jensen and Mexican candidate Sheila Mel believe “the government have to be more consistent with their discourse and to preserve the most precious asset on our planet, the Amazon.”
Cacau Oliver, the creator of the competition, told local media: “Anything that grabs people’s attention should be a means to carry a message of protest. So the girls protest with their bums.”
The Miss Bumbum World contest will take place in the Mexican capital, Mexico City, on 30th September after its final-ever Brazil-only contest last year. The 2018 contest was marred with controversy when contestant Aline Uva stormed the stage and tore the sash off the winner, Ellen Santana.
