Causes 😐

Deforestation is caused by multiple things. They happen by people trying to create space for crops. Also trying to create space for housing and stores or sometimes malls or supermarkets and sometimes they happen accidentally by forest fires.

Impact on Ecosystems 😢

Deforestation has many negative effects on the environment. The most dramatic impact is a loss of habitat for millions of species. Seventy percent of Earth’s land animals and plants live in forests, and many cannot survive the deforestation that destroys their homes.

Ways to stop deforestation 😁

We can do plenty of thing like reserving area's for animals only.

We could try just trying to get recourse's that you need from trees from other things or create a type of paper that can be created without the trees.

We can also have a potation and have many people sign it so they cant cut down the trees in the area.

video summary☹

it basically say's that deforestation is when you cut down trees to create more space and it tells you why people do it which is to create space for stores or farm land and railroads. People have cut down tress without knowing that tree's absorb carbon dioxide which makes more carbon dioxide in the air and less oxygen☹
