How and why should we protect the rainforest? There are many reasons why we should protect rainforests. Firstly, I am going to talk about the problems affecting rainforests throughout the world.

Deforestation In Thailand Proposal Large areas of the world’s forest are being destroyed as you read this sentence. Volcanoes are erupting, floods are flooding and fires are burning; but with these occurrences the forest will emerge again to become what it once was. Unfortunately this is not the major reason that the forest are being depleted, Deforestation, the permanent loss of forestland, caused by humans is the main cause. With natural disasters the land is left to replenish itself but with deforestation the land becomes un-sustainable to forest life. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) “estimates that the annual rate of deforestation is about 1.3 million square km per decade, with the main deforestation occurring in the tropics where a wide variety of forest exist”.
The farmers who plant the coca seed just move to wherever there is more fertile soil. The ecological impact of planting coca seeds is huge. For one acre of planting is takes four acres of rainforest to be cleared.

The construction of roads to mining, oil and logging sites takes it toll on the beauty of the tropical forest.
The Killer of the Amazon Rainforest The Amazon rainforest, located in Brazil, is an essential part of our planet. According to the Amazon Center for Environmental Education and Research (ACEER), the Amazon rainforest holds over two thirds of all the fresh water found on Earth and also produces twenty percent of Earths oxygen supply. Unfortunately, a devastating transformation is taking place throughout the majority of the forest because of the process of deforestation. There are many negative impacts that come with this. Some of which include, global warming, destruction of habitat, and soil erosion.
The Awa people are among some of the people losing their land. Not only are people in these areas losing their homeland, but species of animals are losing their homeland as well. Every year the Amazon loses huge amounts of forest. The Amazon helps stabilize local and global climate. “Over the time period documented, August 2012 to February 2013, the rates [of deforestation] increased an estimated 26.82% and an area of the Amazon larger than the size of the city of London disappeared” (“Deforestation Takes Flight in the Amazon”).
Information is gathered from subtle signs, for example, from the sway of branches, the sounds of animals that penetrate through dense foliation, and from thunder and lightning.

Organizational Method: Topical Topic : Rain-forest General Purpose: To inform Specific Purpose: To inform my audience about the two major cause rain-forest being destroyed. Central Idea : The area of rain-forest on earth is getting smaller, the reasons lead to this situation are deforestation and global climate change. INTRODUCTION: I. Rainforest are forests characterized by high rainfall, with definitions based on a minimum normal annual rainfall of 1750-2000mm. A. Around 40% to 75% of all biotic species are indigenous to the rainforests.
pointing out the known public awareness of nature and that we shouldn't be told to preserve the wilderness (677). Following reasons to conserve nature, Bloom also uses research to prove logically how important nature is to our health. According to Bloom, research says that patients heal quicker and stress is reduced in the presence of nature. He wants the reader know that because it is impossible to recreate nature, we should not forget and destroy the relaxing, healing, and refreshing
