Deforestation
What is deforestation?
Deforestationis clearing the forest by cutting down trees, often
resulting in damage to the quality of the land.
Why is deforestation such a big problem?
Soils and the nutrients in them come out to the heat of the sun. Soil
moisture is going away and nutrients are also going away and
bacteria that helps break down organic matter are affected.
When forests are destroyed, the atmosphere, water bodies and the
water table are all affected.
Many species of plants and animals have been lost, and many
species are in danger. Just over 80% of the world's species remain in
the Tropical Rainforest. It is estimated that about 100 species of
animals are being lost each day as a result of deforestation of their
habitats.
