Transcript of Deforrestation
What can we do to Help Rainforests?
The best way we can help forests is to stop logging entirely, but since it is unrealistic, the next best thing is to plant more trees than we cut. Groups like Global Forest Watch have started projects and use satellite technology to detect illegal deforestation and spread awareness of the situation. Rainforests help us in many ways, and we have to preserve them for years to come. If we don't, they might completely disappear in 100 years.
What is Deforestation?
Deforestation is the destruction of forests, usually by humans to make available land for other uses such as residential buildings, farms, and factories.

Loss of habitat
An increase in greenhouse gasses
A disturbance in the water cycle
Loss of other plants
