Transcript of What is the effect of deforestation on animal life?
on animal life?
What is deforestation?
Deforestation is the removal of trees to make way for farms, houses, or just to create some money.
Where is this occurring?
Deforestation is happening all over the world, but the worst effected areas are; South America, Africa and Asia.
How is this effecting wildlife?
When the trees are chopped down this destroys the wildlife's habitat.
More than 1,000 of the 9,000 bird species in the world are at risk of extinction. This is because many birds live in the effected areas.
We could be losing as many as 17,500 species of animals every year.
Birds only found in the pacific island region are more vulnerable to extinction because it’s the only spot their found.
Its estimated that 25,000 of the 250,000 species of plants around the world are at risk of extinction.
The Atlantic Forest
The Atlantic forest is located in Brazil (South America). Only 10% of its original forest is standing. The logging has slowed down in the past few years and in some spots they have started to rebuild.
