18 million acres a year are cut down and never replanted. This causes the health of not only the animals but us humans, to also turn bad. Deforestation makes the air worse to breathe, wherever it happens, and it turns places into deserts and takes away most of the rain, too. If anyone can do something for the environment, it's you, because you have a voice here, and it can be heard. Not only that, but we need a future where we can do everything we can to prevent deforestation from happening. You can be a scientist, a government official, an author, anyone that can spread awareness and help save the world.
