The Human Environment Interaction In Latin America

The main human interaction in Latin America is deforestation. Deforestation is when there is a certain cause that makes a forest get destroyed, torn down, and, or, taken away. There are a lot of things that humans do to cause deforestation, here are a few examples:illegal logging, fires, fuel wood harvesting, etc. . .. Illegal logging causes there to not be enough trees, that will affect us as well, the less trees we have, the less oxygen we have to breathe in. Fires will cause the whole forest to burn down, now think about it, if you live near a forest and that forest catches on fire, then your home and the land you live on could possibly burn down as well. As you can see, deforestation is a big problem over all. Whatever we are doing to cause it, we need to stop.
