Save The Nation
Save the Trees So You Can Breathe
70% of the Earth's land and animals live in forests. Due to deforestation, much of the habitats are being destroyed.
The world's rainforests will completely disappear in a hundred years at the current rate of deforestation.
Trees absorb greenhouse gases that fuel global warming. Fewer forests leads to larger amounts of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere, and increased speed and severity of global warming.
