Save The Rainforests
How much rainforest is in my chocolate bar?

Imagine that you have to describe a rainforest to a friend. What words and phrases would you use? We will explore where rainforests are found, the animals and plants that they would expect to find and the people who live in rainforests. Rainforests once covered 14% of the world's surface. Now they cover less than 5%. Every second, an area of the rainforest the size of a football field is being destroyed. Some scientists believe that, if we lose our rainforests, we might put our whole planet at risk. Sadly, it is easy to point the finger of blame and tell people what they should be doing to preserve the rainforest. Many people believe that the destruction is not a local issue but a global problem that involves everyone. What will we do to help save the rainforest?
