Protect our vitally important resource
(Hoboken, Nj, US)
The rain forests of the world are like the lungs of the planet. They are also home to thousands of species, vital to our eco-system.
With deforestation happening, at alarming rates, around the world, the rainforests are dying. As the forests shrink, so does the amount of rain, causing the earth to literally dry up.
I've been to the rainforest in Puerto Rico and it was amazing. The air
was dense and it rained intermittently throughout my visit. I saw vegetation that i have never seen before and the the amount of vegetation was almost magical.
Rainforests such as this need to preserved if our planet has a chance. Deforestation regulations need to be stricter and penalties for illegal cutting need to be enforced.
Stopping the slaughter is only the first step. Planting of new trees needs to be a bigger priority now so the trees can start maturing and contributing to the eco-system before it fails entirely.Barry's Response
