Rainforests

Riya from Indonesia

Miguel,
 
I am sad to say that we are having the same problems in Indonesia as well.  So much of the rainforest here is being burned to the ground.  I get so scared when I see the horrible fires in the forest!  Because so many trees have been lost, the amount of CO2 being put into the atmosphere is more than in being taken out.  As the dead vegetation is decaying, it also releases CO2.  It makes me so frustrated that logging companies, plantation developers, and governments allow this to happen.  So many innocent animals are dying because of deforestation, as well as its harmful effects on all of us around the world.  I think it is our responsibility to take a stand so this does not continue into our future!
 
Lets make a difference together!
