down trees and taking the orangutans homes. Without tress we are reducing oxygen, fruit growth, and leaving animals homeless. MORE ON DEFORESTATION -The earth is covered with 30% of Forest
- pieces the size of Panama are lost every year.
-Most Rain Forest are cut down for money or farming.
-trees are also cut down for paper products, wood products which kills countless trees. what causes deforestation? Some deforestation is caused by a combination of human effects and natural effects.
-Human effects: pollution, waste on growing area, contamination in growing area etc
-Natural effects: drought, wildfires,and natural disasters, etc Trash ruins soil which is full of nutrients for tree. EFFECTS OF DEFORESTATION Effects: are the destruction of the homes of many species, 70% of earth's species live in the forest.
Us humans would be affected too because deforestation causes climate change. There would also be less water because trees are involved in a process of the water cycle called MORE EFFECTS insects to BIG wild cats, are left homeless when a tractor comes in and knock over their homes. Most of our world's most beautiful species are going extinct because of deforestation. TOUCANS Beautiful species like toucans are on the border line of extinction. PLEASE HELP US SAVE THE TREES!! Some ways to help us stop deforestation:
REDUCE PAPER CONSUMPTION:
Use the back of paper, if you make a mistake do not crumble the piece of paper erase the mistake, do not skip lines for no reason, reuse paper if possible, like to wrap glass objects to clean or, any project. No more Toucans=No more Fruit Loops Big old trees are in danger they are very useful. They do many things younger trees can not do like, provide homes for many animals, grow seeds for food and to help reproduce more trees they also store a lot of carbon and green house gases which reduces Global Warming. Resources ANOTHER WAY TO HELP DURING CHRISTMAS TIME <^> During Christmas is when a lot of young pine trees get cut down. Thousands of young pine tress get cut down to be used for only about a month or so and then get thrown out. Fake tress work just as fine. So help us out and buy a fake trees and reuse it the next year. OUR COMMERCIAL RECYCLE:
Do not throw anything made out of paper in the trash can put it in the recycling bin.
FOLLOWING ITEMS CAN BE RECYCLED:
Cereal box
Notebook/white paper
Toilet paper roll
Cardboard box
Carton of juice or any other liquid
etc
or just plant more trees to replace the ones you cut down. WHY NICHE ...? Niche: describes the way of life of a specie.
-All animals have a unique niche.
-It also describes how an organism or population respond to the distribution of resources WE ARE ALL UNIQUE (: GAME TIME !! WE ARE NICHE ! Little
