This website was created to help bring awareness to deforestation in the Rainforests. It was created by a group of 5 IB students, as an extention to their group 4 project. The slideshow above was used during their presentation. This site is full of facts and extensive information on Deforestation in the rainforest, and both its negative and positive impact. We hope you enjoy!
A rainforest is an area with an unusually high amount of rainfall per year located in areas around the world, near the equator. There are rainforests in Asia, Africa, and most notably South America (The Amazon).
Deforestation, is the act of rapid removement of trees from an area whether it be for resources or to clear land. Deforestation is happening at a massive rate worldwide in rainforests, and pretty soon we will all feel the negative effects of this act. It is predicted by 2030 the Amazon alone will be reduced to ten percent of what it is today.
