World Rainforest Day: The Time is Now

Today, June 22, is World Rainforest Day. I find it hard to keep up with all the significant days to remember on our calendars. Many of which, like this one, I didn’t know existed. On World Rainforest Day we recognize the significance of tropical rainforests for our planet. This year’s theme is “The Time is Now.” This theme aims to make people more sensitive to how crucial rainforests are for survival of life on Earth.

Rainforests support the largest variety of plants and animal species of any other ecosystem in the world. Besides, sustaining life they also influence weather patterns and act as major carbon sinks, moderating local temperatures and keeping our air clean. Did you know everything which Rainforests do? I am not sure that I did. Oh, I know they exist and have a purpose, but to this extent, probably did not know.

Did you know that an average of 137 Species of Plants and Animals are driven into extinction every day in the World’s Tropical Rainforests? I know that Plants and Animals go into extinction all the time, but I was not aware of the significant number that become extinct.
