During our circumnavigation of the world, we will be passing through some of the glorious tropical rainforests of South America and Africa. It is a troubling thought that at the current rate of deforestation, within 30 years, these forests will be gone forever.
Every four minutes, an area of rainforest equivilent to one football pitch is destroyed by human activity. By cutting down these forests, we are not just damaging the environment in these distant lands, we are destroying the very future of our species in return for short term gain. We simply have to find another way - to ensure that forests are worth more standing than they are felled. Rainforest Concern works with local communities to do just that.
