There is hardly a more
beautiful sight to be seen than a group of bright red scarlet macaws
flying at a speed of 35 miles per hour. Or, a more spectacular
experience than running into a clever troop of white face capuchin
monkeys actively searching through the vast forest canopy for fruits

Or, a more exciting
scene to observe than a basilisk lizard gracefully running on the
surface of a creek that connects to a giant waterfall.
These are just three
examples of the estimated one million species that find their homes
only in the beautiful tropical rainforests. These living organisms
will become extinct, along with their beauty and mystery, if their
homes are destroyed through tropical deforestation.
