Threats/ Dangers

  • The main threats for the Tropical Rainforest are people. They cut down trees all the time and every minute 30 acres of trees are cut down. We can stop this by replanting the trees we cut down so we aren't completely ruining the habitat.
  • The other threat to the rainforest is drouts. The rainforest plants and animals need water and cannot suvive with out it. We can fix this by trying to use less water that is near the Rainforests.
