Last year, tropical forests had the second highest loss of trees ever recorded. @globalforests reported that due to climate change, natural disasters, and deforestation, tropical forests lost about 39 million acres of 🌴🌴🌴 That’s equivalent to the size of Bangladesh or losing 40 football fields of trees every minute for an entire year! If that statistic isn’t staggering enough, Brazil alone lost 11.1 million acres. In addition, tropical forests are home to roughly half of all species worldwide and are essential for absorbing CO2 emitted into the atmosphere and for regulating climate. However, only 2% of global funds go toward forest conservation. This June, 500 forest experts and policymakers met in Oslo to discuss how to protect the world’s tropical forests. The hope is that proper conservation and restoration of these forests could provide a cost-effective way to reach CO2 reduction goals by 2030. ▪︎ ▪︎ ▪︎ ▪︎ ▪︎ #YEARSproject #rainforest #deforestation #conservation #climatechange #climateaction #trees - Years Of Living Dangerously
