Earth’s most essential ecosystem, we all depend on rainforest for our survival.

Earth’s most essential ecosystem, we all depend on rainforest for our survival. It’s the planet’s living air purifier and natural pharmacy, hiding vast amounts of known and unknown medicinal plants under its canopy.

1.6. billion people worldwide relying on it for their livelihoods, and it is estimated to be home to 350 million people around the tropics. As well as being essential for shelter, health and food, rainforest is also an intrinsic part of many indigenous communities’ cultures and traditions.  

The rainforest is also a megadiverse ecosystem, home to millions of species of plants, animals and insects. Protecting these species is vital as we are believed to be losing around 135 species every day. That’s 50,000 species a year, due to deforestation.

If we are to preserve wildlife habitat, support local communities and keep Earth’s climate from further breakdown, the whole world must do all we can to keep Earth’s mega-diverse ecosystems standing strong.
