More than half the Earth’s rain-forests have been lost permanently due to insatiable human demand for building space, wood, medicine, and now less than four percent of Earth is forest area. Nevertheless, North America is in the top three countries when it comes to having the least deforestation. Very little of our forests are being cut down. Is the U.S doing its part in saving the forests of the world? Not particularly. The U.S has less than 14% of rural areas left already, and those places are becoming urban civilizations extremely fast. It is estimated that by 2030, less than 10% of the U.S will be rural. That’s not the worst part, though. We’re not exactly helping any of the other continents either, especially South America and Africa.The United States is hiring/sending out people to cut down forests worldwide so we can have the things we want. But wanting something is not as important as needing. We need forests. Ever heard of the atmosphere? The air we breathe has oxygen, and that’s something that’s essential for us to survive. It comes from plants, and with fewer rain forests and a growing human population, troubles going to catch up with us really soon. In addition, deforestation isn't just destroying trees and plant-life... it’s destroying animals’ homes. Mammals, reptiles, arachnids... it’s effecting the whole animal kingdom. If we keep this up, our world could become a polluted wasteland. Please support me in saving the rain forests of the world and seeding new plant-life. I want to make this world a better place. Maybe not in my lifetime, but for my posterity. I am determined. Are you? Join me in my mission by visiting the "Donate" page on the site and donating. Even pennies can make the difference of life or death to a poor forest creature.
