June 22nd World Rain Forest Day

Rain forests provide 20% of the oxygen we breath and are home to nearly 50% of the earth’s animals. Just those two reasons should be reason enough for us to protect them and cherish them, but we often don’t. Man, wanting special woods and wanting room to expand the settled areas of the world often destroy the rain forests knowing it will take years for them to regrow if they regrow at all. They help keep the climates of the earth stable and rid the earth of carbon dioxide as well, again two more reasons we should be aware of what we are doing.

How to celebrate – Visit a Rain Forest, they even exist in Alaska. Join the “Rain Forest Partnership”. Don’t buy products that come from the rain forests.
