The world’s most expansive forest, the Amazon, is the site of the greatest projected loss of natural life-sustaining habitat and beauty due to deforestation which makes efforts to conserve the forest and save its defenseless inhabitants a critical priority and essential duty of our time. Deforestation affects the world in a negative way, with the most dramatic impact being the loss of habitat for millions of species. In fact, “80% of Earth’s land animals and plants live in forests.” (National Geographic Deforestation 1) Animals would lose shelter, food resources, and breeding area. Without an ample number of trees, the forests would lose its canopy which would cause extreme temperature
Most people in Honduras live in the north where most of the factories for work are located, but indigenous people and anyone else living in the rural areas deal with most of the effects of deforestation. When you remove large areas of forest the climate will begin to change and effect anyone living around it. Since Honduras is a poor country it is harder to protect yourself from environmental changes. Also, by deforestation the water sources they use are no longer protected and leave rural and urban areas without good drinking water. Illegal logging is still a rising problem, because those doing so are not having to pay taxes on sales to other countries, and this is taking away from all wood sellers in the Honduras community.
The Congo basin supports a large rainforest ecosystem, which contributes on a large scale to stable the world climate. But this ecosystem is endangered due to the vast wealth of resources and accompanied illegal mining activities, particularly in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Diverse case studies about Congo’s Kahuzi-Biega Park, Okapi Reserve and Virunga Park ascertain that deforestation, water pollution as well as hunting and poaching are the most common environmental impacts. Observations show that only approximately 20 % of mammals are still alive in some heritage areas. These impacts lead to a high loss of biodiversity and results in a dramatically change in rainforest ecosystem services.
Increasing proportions of deforestation is because of industrial activities and large scale agriculture. By the beginning of the 2000’s more than three quarters of forest clearing was for cattle farming Illegal logging is a main cause of deforestation in the vicious cycle of rainforest destruction. This is when farmers remove valuable timber from areas that they have illegally occupied. This results in land grabbers building roads that lead into untouched parts of the Amazon which opens more doors into the wonders and exposes the forest to exploitation and destruction without even a second thought or an understanding of the damage being done and the consequences of these
Many types of the similar trees have been cut down by lumber companies and wiping out important types of trees. Poaching throughout the Neches river was a big problem too, wiping almost a whole deer species out. In different years many good and bad things happened in the Neches river that shapes it up today. Richard wanted to tell every bit of history that Neches River posses and how it all happened the way it did. As much as why it all happened as well.
Compared to Europeans, Indians had a lot more, which the settlers were not used to,because the landscape in England was restricted for landowners. Heavy forests covered New England, which was also unusual to the settlers, England had cut down all of its wood for fuel. European settlers were amazed by the lack of domestic animals, which was very common in European agriculture. The European settlers and the Indians had different ways of how they live and different opinions on how they should use the land around them. Cronon expresses, “Many European visitors were struck by what seemed to them the poverty of Indians who lived in the midst of a landscape endowed so astonishingly with abundance” (Cronon 33).
‘Deforestation refers to the cutting, clearing, and removal of rainforest or related ecosystems into less bio-diverse ecosystems such as pasture, cropland, or plantations.’ -Kricher (1997) Deforestation is the permanent effect of the destruction of forests to make space and land for other uses. Deforestation is the removal of all or most of the trees in a forest or forested area. It can damage the environment by causing many consequences. Around the size of 36 football fields is being cut down in this minute. The world 's highest rates of deforestation, a significant cause of global warming, are happening in the key emerging economies of Nigeria, Indonesia and Brazil.
It has affected the environment by have deforestation problems. Deforestation is when people remove and cut down trees for special purposes such as getting wood to make houses. As Rwanda is a land enveloped in lush green vegetation there are lots of trees being cut down it can affect the ani,mals there by not having food and die and when the animals die there will be less food for people to eat so that will affect people dieing because of hunger. This causes a cycle of so many death that is why it needs to be stopped. Rwanda has already made a ban of having no plastic bags as it is not biodegradable and it affects the environment by it bringing pollution problems which focused on a different thing.
In small town in Paraguay called Cateura there are mountains of trash everywhere. The garbage litters the streets, invades people's houses, and contaminates their rivers. The news story, The Recyclers: From Trash Comes Triumph, reveals that through all of this trash a symphony has arose. The trash that surrounds this village provides jobs of thousands. Many of the “trash pickers” were peasant farmers who had their land taken away by large landowners.
Therefore, a big problem we have now is deforestation of the Amazon. People harm this environment and this affects our climate. People illegally cut down trees in the Amazon, harming the economy. The influence of the Amazon is so great that there is even a preservation law to prevent deforestation in Brazil (according to WWF International). As you can see, people are worried about our Amazon Rainforest and are trying to preserve it as best they can to further help our
