5. Logging:
They cut down trees and they put them in big trucks. They use the tree trunk to build the logs Deforestation Paragraph The continuing of deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest is caused by many reasons.
The first reason is for cattle ranching they want not half but most of the land in the Amazon. They want it so they could feed their cows soy beans.
The next reason is for farmers they do not want that much but they want it so they could grow crops and then sell them.Also for logging. They cut down the trees and with those trees they make logs. They cut down the trees so they could make furniture out of it and paper. Miners also want it so they could dig in and see if they find any gold or cropper. People also want it so they could get oil, soy, and palm out of it . It's also being destroyed by burning down the trees.
There are also many reasons why the Amazon Rainforest is being DESTROYED but we can do something about it. But there's
HOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rubber Trees in the Amazon Rainforest are used to make rubber. The trees have latex on them and then you can make rubber without cutting the trees and make it disappear each day. Fruit Instead of buying meat you could by fruits. Buy something that could grow back. Like nuts,mango,and other fruits. Try to not buy that much meat because meat doesn't grow back because it comes from cows and other animals and that's why they want a piece of land from the Amazon Rainforest. from this to this Staro Satro is a company that helps peasant people. Staro gives them bees so they could make honey and not take away a land from the Amazon Rainforest . When the honey is done they could sell it and not have to grow crops in the Amazon Rainforest because they took away a piece of land. Cool Earth is a company that you buy a piece of land from the Amazon Rainforest and it's basically the land is all yours. They are doing this because they don't want the Rainforest to disappear. Cool Earth One thing that was amazing was that people approximately burn 2700 million acres of land each year. Stay Amazed....... THE END
