Forests matter for nature – they are home to over 80% of terrestrial biodiversity, including 80% of amphibians, 75% of birds and 68% of mammals.
Wildlife depends on trees and forests. Trees provide nesting sites, food, habitat and shelter for a wide variety of animals. From the smallest insects to large predators, everything is represented. (Green is a Mission)
“Forests provide habitats for plants and animals, including some of our planet’s most iconic species like the tiger, giant panda, gorilla and orangutan. Deforestation of some tropical forests could lead to the loss of as many as 100 species a day. Our ability to stop biodiversity loss is heavily dependent on our ability to stop forest loss.” ~ World Wildlife Fund
We need the protection of existing forests and reforestation worldwide.
