What are the effects of deforestation?

There are many effects of deforestation in Costa Rica. First, it affects the animals. For example, species loss, also known as animal extinction would happen. For example, sloths and squirrel monkeys are losing their homes or can not travel between the coast and the mainland. Additionally, erosion happens a lot when trees are cut down. Soil erosion happens when the soil gets washed away by wind or water. A final effect is we will also have fragmentation which is when a lot of trees are cut down which also affects animals.

What are the solutiones of deforestation?

There are many possible solutions to deforestation. First, we can plant wildlife corridors. This will help animals migrate from one side to the other. In addition, we can make monkey bridges for monkeys, sloths, coatis, and other animals to travel over roads. Finally, you can make backyard farming, this will stop intensive farming which is a way of bad farming.

In my opinion...

In my opinion, we should do the solutions above and plant more trees. For example on many websids where you can donate. For example Cloud Bridge Nature Reserve.
