From the Amazon in South America to Daintree in Australia and Africa’s Congo Rainforest, there are hundreds of fascinating creatures and trees to be found in these rainforests, even though deforestation continues to put many species at risk of extinction.
Up to 170 million hectares of forest could be destroyed by 2030 according to the World Wildlife Federation (WWF). The organisation has identified eleven forests that are major deforestation fronts and where 80% of forests loss is projected to take place over the next two decades under business-as-usual scenarios and without interventions to prevent losses.
