Deforestation

By Cole K

What is deforestation?

Deforestation is the killing of our forests through human needs, interaction, and actions. This can have many bad affects like the extinction of animals or plants. This also can allow out rivers and oceans to become even more contaminated.

What is the problem with deforestation?

Deforestation is the cause of some animals extinction. Without the trees the silt from the ground runs off into the water killing many fish and water animals. With out the trees animals are forced to move into other areas like city's and then have a chance to get run over or killed by other man made appliances. Also the trees are a vital source of oxygen and we are slowly depleting our oxygen supplies.

How can we stop it?

We can stop deforestation or slow it down by supporting an organization like Cuipo (link below). All you have to do is purchase something or donate a dollar to save one square meter of amazonian rain forest. This is only one of the many organizations that helps to stop deforestation.

Why is it happening?

The trees are being cut down to make more free land, to make room for cattle farming, to get lumber, and to collect rubber. All of this is to make money but at what expense to our world. This is killing our rain forests, plants, and many animals just to earn a simple living. Why not change and help the world for a change instead of hurt it.
