Stopping Deforestation

Killing Earth Little By Little

The Harm

Deforestation is a big problem around the world. Many forests are being destroyed. As much as 12-15 hectares of forest are lost each year. With deforestation happening many species lose their homes. Many birds would have to leave because they live in trees. Other animals might starve because their food leaves. Deforestation causes 15% of the greenhouse emissions yearly.The messed up water cycle will be thrown off balance even more. Increased soil erosion will take place. Without the good soil, no more trees can be planted. Millions of people already depend on the forests through hunting and gathering for food and medicine. Without the forests they can't find the things to survive.
