Learn about what threatens our Rainforests, and what you can do to help.
Patricia Engel-Bunch's insight:

You may be shocked to see the picture of a rain forest that demonstrates the results of clearcutting and even more so to read the caption found beneath it. An article on the deforestation of rainforests provides statistics related to the loss of rainforests and the reasons for their demise. A list of threats shows you who and what is responsible for this problem. This is followed by a list of solutions that offer hope to the future of rain forests.

Patricia Engel-Bunch's insight:

Tropical rainforests are found in regions along the equator. These regions have a lot of plant growth, and with an average temperature between 70 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit, they are warm all year long. Temperate rainforests are different. Temperate rainforests are mild and cooler. They are usually found along the coastline in temperate regions, such as the Pacific Northwest in the United States. You can learn a lot more about the weather in a rainforest, and the plant and animal life that can be found in rainforests in the article on this Web site.

SAFARI Montage: Landmarks Tropical Rainforest: Destroying the Fores

SAFARI Montage: Landmarks Tropical Rainforest: Destroying the Fores | Rainforest Research | Scoop.it
Patricia Engel-Bunch's insight:

This live-action program looks at the destruction of the tropical rain forests and explores why the forests are being cut down and the effects that this will have for the future. Viewers will learn how industrial land development, native relocation, farming, cattle ranching, land burning, mining, dam building and timber sales are affecting the rainforests of Brazil and the world. Along the way, students will see how various industries bring money into the country, but negatively affect the land because of how the development is done at the expense of the plants, animals and people who live in the forest-the price of progress. Viewers will also see how rainforest destruction may be causing a ''greenhouse effect.'' Narrated by Allison Colville.

Eco kid: Savior of the Belizean Rainforest!

Eco kid: Savior of the Belizean Rainforest! | Rainforest Research | Scoop.it

Rember Cerón has an essay submission for this year’s Chaa Creek Eco Kids Summer Camp.

 

"The rainforest is home to numerous species such as The Tapir, Scarlet Macaw, Toucan, etc.  It is the home of a wide variety of flora and fauna. In the anxiety of developing the world, and expanding to provide dwellings, humans are destroying nature.  When someone builds a house or a building, they destroy many animal species and plants; thus, contributing to the destruction of the rainforest.  Another way that humans are destroying the forests is through fires.  Being careless can cause any forest fire and so it destroys nature.  The only way how the rainforest can develop or grow more is by us taking care of it and planting more trees."
