Forests cover one third of the earth’s land mass. It is one of the richest ecosystems on the planet, hosting more than half of all terrestrial plant and animal species. They play a vital role in controlling climate change by absorbing CO2 and buffering the impact of storms and floods. In addition, 1.6 billion people depend on them for their survival.
Today, intensive logging, the global rise in temperature and pollution are threatening these lungs of the planet, causing 12 million hectares to disappear every year.
The use of non-polluting energies that do not depend on fossil fuels is crucial for the conservation of these ecosystems, on which our future largely depends.
