Rainforest

How Do They Contribute

How do They Help?

The Rainforest make up 7% of the worlds surface. They also help us to breath because it makes up 20% of the air we breath. Without the Rainforest we would also not have a subtle anti cancer fighting plant named periwinkle only found in Rainforest

What Do They Provide

How Do They Empack our World

They give us 20% of the oxygen we breathe, they also give us 25% of medicine we use today. The Rainforest is also filled with Natives that need the Rainforest to shelter and provide for them, they also know many heroes found in the forest for healing. They Rainforest also holds up to about 1,000 different animals found just there. Many of which are endangered, that also makes it illegal to destroy or build on their habitat. Then why do we destroy the Rainforest when they give us so much, some to even keep us alive? We can stop the destruction if we find the problem and stop the deforestation, to help maintain them for future generations to come.
