The Great Bear Rainforest

Threats to the Rainforest

There is a oil pipeline that is threatening the Rainforest. If there is a small crack in the pipeline it can destroy the plants in the Rainforest. If all the plants die then the herbivores will either die or leave the ecosystem. If that happens then the carnivores that eat the herbivores will leave or die. In conclusion if the pipeline breaks then the whole biome will be destroyed.
