Deforrestation project

  1. 1. Deforestation in the Amazon Rainforest and the rainforest groups By:Devin Tyler
  2. 2. What is deforestation <ul><li>Deforestation is the clearing of trees in massive quantities </li></ul><ul><li>The trees are now used as other wood products. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The rain forest groups <ul><li>Rubber tapers </li></ul><ul><li>Environmentalists </li></ul><ul><li>Settlers </li></ul><ul><li>Natives </li></ul><ul><li>Loggers </li></ul><ul><li>ranchers </li></ul>
  4. 4. Natives <ul><li>The natives have been living in the rainforest for centuries. Although the natives use the natural resources, they do not waste the sources and they refuse to let their land be demolished by other people. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Environmentalists <ul><li>Environmentalists try to preserve the rain forest and study the plants and animals in the forest. They search the forest for new medical uses and cures. The environmentalists fight to save the forest for future generations. </li></ul>
  6. 6. settlers <ul><li>Settlers come into the forest and then cut down the trees to make clearings to live in them. They then plant crops and build their own civilizations to survive inside the small settlements. The settlers are often given their land by the Brazilian government. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Rubber Tappers <ul><li>The rubber tappers make slits in rubber trees and collect the sap that will be used to make rubber products. Although they slit the trees they do not harm them in any ways </li></ul>
  8. 8. loggers <ul><li>Loggers cut down trees and use them to make wood products </li></ul>
  9. 9. ranchers <ul><li>They clear the land by burning down the trees, plant grass and the cows eat the grass and the cows release CO2 </li></ul><ul><li>This is a sky view of a small part of the Amazon that has been destroyed! </li></ul>
  10. 10. What’s Going On <ul><li>Every year a portion of the Amazon rain forest the size of New Jersey is taken away .That in my opinion is WAY too much </li></ul><ul><li>In the years between 2000 and 2006 </li></ul><ul><li>Brazil lost 150000 square kilometers of the rainforest. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Why is this all happening so quickly? <ul><li>It is not going as slow as it use to in fact it is going extremely rapidly.Brazil is in debt so they need to pay it off by exporting goods coming from the cattle ranchers beef and the logs from the loggers. </li></ul>
  12. 12. So… How can you help? <ul><li>To fix the cattle rancher problem you could eat less beef at your house </li></ul><ul><li>For the logger problem use both sides of the paper you are using to write on. and RECYCLE </li></ul><ul><li>Those are the two groups harming the rainforest most </li></ul>
  13. 13. THANKS FOR WATCHING <ul><li>Please send this video to friends and family to promote awareness for deforestation so we can make a difference in the Amazon for a better tomorrow </li></ul>
