These magnificent creatures are losing their homes. Every year, 18.7 million acres of forest is wiped out around the world–that’s 27 soccer fields per minute. Deforestation has many causes, including agriculture and timber, ranching and development, and degradation due to climate change. Currently, 12% of Earth’s bird species are threatened with extinction. In 50-80 years, 1 in 5 bird species could be gone forever. Forests provide homes for these birds and the future of our flying friends depends on them. 🐦🌳🐣 To learn more about deforestation, click the link in our bio.
