Hidden amongst the captivating layers of the rainforest lies over half of the world’s plant and animal species that are at serious risk of endangerment due to deforestation. Every second half an acre of the rainforest is being destroyed and at this rapid rate experts believe our

rainforest will vanish

by the year 2050.

With all the potential

medical miracles and

valuable resources

awaiting discovery,

we must spread

awareness of the

importance of

protecting the

rainforest community.
