This week we’re celebrating World Rainforest Week (Oct 12th – Oct 18th) with a Rainforest Booklist.

World Rainforest Week

Did you know that: Rain forests are important to our global ecosystem?

Rain forests:

  • 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 !!

Here are some lovely reads to inspire you.
