Nobody knows exactly how much of the world's rainforests have already been destroyed and continue to be,each year.
In order to say rainforests,we need to know why they are being destroyed.
The immediate causes of rainforest destruction are clear.The main cause is agriculture and in drier areas,fuelwood collection.Another cause is logging.Commercial logging companies cut down mature trees that have been selected for their timper.The companies defend themselves by saying that the forests regrow naturally and in time.Of course that is not true.Other problems for the environment is that plants and animals become extinct and the trees can't produce the oxygen we need.
The obvious solution is to stop destroying rainforests.Of course,that is much easier to say than to do it.All the people who care about that,have to convince the governments to protect rainforests.
