Every 30 minutes 30 acres of trees in rainforests are being destroyed. Large areas of rainforests are destroyed in order to remove only a few logs. They really should put more effort in protecting our rainforest’s and not cut down so many trees.
We need the rainforest for so many things one of those things is carbon protection. Slowing deforestation by 50% from current levels could save approximately fifty billion tons of carbon from being released into the atmosphere. The rainforest also saves us from drought. When the trees are no longer present they can’t absorb rainwater through their roots, resulting in drought.
Another reason why we should save the rainforest is for the animals. In the rainforest there are many different animals. Some examples are amphibians that are capable of living on land and in water. The climate in the tropical rainforest biome is perfect for millions of types of animals and plants to live there. At least 15 million different ones have been identified successfully. It is believed that there are many more though that haven’t been identified yet. This is why it is so very important to protect them. The specific types of animals that will be living in a tropical rainforest depend on the location.
Small insects including the Monarch Butterfly and beetles live here. Beetles are very dominant as are termites. There are plenty of ants and spiders found around this biome as well. They can range in size from extremely small to larger ones. These are important parts of the biome even though they aren’t as big as other living creatures found in it.
The mammals include a variety of different types of animals. You may find monkeys, bats, possums, kangaroos, tigers, or fox to name a handful of them. Reptiles including a variety of snakes reside here. Many of them are extremely large and they live in the trees of the tropical rainforest biome. Amphibians including the frog and salamander reside in this biome.
