Why Save Rainforests?
It is vital that we all join forces in fighting against climate change. We know how to protect the environment – we just have to do it. Rainforests are the green lungs of the earth. Although they only make up 2 percent of all land, they sequester the majority of greenhouse gases man and animals produce around the globe every day.
We lose 18.7 million acres of forests per year, which is an equivalent of 27 soccer fields EVERY MINUTE.
Fighting Climate Change
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, about half of the rainforests have already fallen victim to deforestation.
What is worse are estimates that 20 to 30 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions are actually caused by the deforestation process itself.
Without rainforests, we won’t have clean air to breathe. Deforestation affects insect life on the planet. As well, food supply and food chain for humans around the world is in danger.
