This week we’re celebrating World Rainforest Week (Oct 12th – Oct 18th) with a Rainforest Booklist.
Did you know that: Rain forests are important to our global ecosystem?
- Provide a home to many plants and animals.
- Help stabilize our world’s climate.
- Protect us against flood, drought, and erosion.
- Are a source for some medicines and foods.
- Support tribal people, and are an interesting place to visit.
Every year, the Rainforest Action Network designates a week in October as World Rainforest Week to encouraging us to recognize the beauty and wonder of the world’s rain forests. An intact rainforest is worth $6,280 per acre if sustainably harvested; $1,000 if clear cut for commercial timber ($0 five years after a clear cut); and $148 if used as cattle pasture.
I’d like you to think about Conservation !! Please Save Our Rain Forests !!
