It is a good idea to discuss an issue of deforestation that which is affecting our part of the world “AFRICA”!!!!

It will be expedient to formed a network that will work together to curb the situation of deforestation globally to help foster the World Wildlife Federation Cause.

There is a need to have locals been supported in farming with some level of machines and fertilizers in order to stop the shifting cultivation and make a maximum use of the land that which they are using presently for agriculture.

I am impress by the level at which the world is getting involved with the protection of the green house gases. I hope to discuss this issue in an open forum.

WATCHED UP FOR THE OPEN FORUM !!!!!!

Let's save orangutan. Only about 6,600 sumatran orangutan and 40,000 to 50,000 borneo orangutan remain in the wild.

I'm really excited to see that projects like this are working to sustainably protect forests, wildlife and generate income. Forest conservation isn't easy and working to create parks and green corridors is vital for long-term growth socially and economically. I'm definitely sharing this along to my students and friends. Welcome home Orangutans.

Manufacturing paper is the biggest reason that trees are brought down for. Trees are the lungs of our environment. Everyone knows how essential they are for sustainability of every species. Still, unfortunately a little is done to stop this hazardous practice called deforestation. Reducing the use of paper and recycling it is a big way to solve this thing to a major extent. Every paper that you recycle saves an appreciable amount of energy and a tree. Reduce-Reuse-Recycle is the biggest and the easiest mantra that can be followed to make a brave change to the environment!! And the good news about that, it saves your money and the priceless green belts too! smile

I am so excited and thrilled to be involved in such an incredible project. This opportunity is amazing and this project is going to have such a massive impact on the planet and the way youth care for it. As someone who strives to make a difference in the way youth view our planet, by realizing it is not an infinite resource that we are free to burn, chop, and drain whenever we please, it is empowering to know that there is finally something that is going to show everyone by allowing them to view the impacts of and action on the ground being done to work against the terrors of deforestation and that we can all truly make a difference towards positive global change. As cliche as it sounds, there is power in numbers and this is a great project to advocate just that, we can all make a difference, each and everyone of us.
