Rainforests are vital for the survival of life on Earth – the Amazon rainforest alone provides 20% of the oxygen we breathe and the freshwater we drink. Rainforests absorb our carbon dioxide, stabilize climate patterns, and are home to half the world’s plant and animal species. Yet every minute, we lose an area of rainforest the size of 40 football fields, threatening our planet’s health and biodiversity.
World Rainforest Day celebrates this precious natural resource and encourages action to preserve it. Your efforts, together with the actions of others, can have a positive impact on rainforests, biodiversity and the climate worldwide, helping to preserve a healthy future for all.
