Composed of millions of unique ecosystems, rainforests are the central nervous system of our planet—a hotbed of evolution, life, and diversity.
This video shows the Rainforests’s impact our lives on a daily basis and how losing them would be an insurmountable disaster for humans.
Thus far, our human family has erased half of our original endowment of rainforests. Our world is now facing a sixth mass extinction—the greatest extinction crisis since the fall of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. The future of over half of Earth’s plants and animals—and hundreds of human cultures—will be determined within the next few decades.
Since our lives are so dependent on the forest’s bounty, our future is at stake as well.
