Forests are essential to life on earth and currently cover 31% of the land area on our planet. They sequester carbon from our environment, produce oxygen, and provide wildlife habitat. However, many forests are bring devastated by deforestation worldwide!
Deforestation comes in many forms, including fires, clear-cutting for agriculture, ranching and development, unsustainable logging for timber, and degradation due to invasive species and climate change. This impacts people’s livelihoods and threatens a wide range of plant and animal species.
Currently, we’re losing 18.7 million acres of forests annually, equivalent to 27 soccer fields every minute. It is estimated that 15% of all greenhouse gas emissions are the result of deforestation.
