You should care about deforestation because it helps protect the millions of plants and animal species, many of which are needed for human medicine. Keeping forests also hope to prevent floods and droughts.
To support this case, you could plant a tree, go paperless at home and in offices/schools, buy recycled/recyclable products and recycle them. You should buy certified wood products where they replant the trees. Support companies that are committed to reducing deforestation, and raise awareness in your community. As well as signing this petition.
It may work as one of the many reasons why deforestation is happening is because people don’t recycle their paper which leads to people needing more paper, which leads to trees getting chopped down which leads to deforestation. So, with these different strategies allow trees to grow.
