Hopefully, environmental organizations will make a difference. Sometimes it seems destruction due to human beings will continue-- it has to stop!~

Rainforests are precious for all of us. If we don’t take action to protect rainforests and to encourage rainforest nations to continue to develop without deforestation, we could lose another 100 million hectares of tropical forests over the next 10 years – an area the size of Egypt.

Thank you Jill!

We must save the biodiversity both for its sake and for the health - mental, physical and spiritual we can gain from it. We will be immensely impoverished if we lose this biodiversity.
