    Life in the Rainforest

    It is believed that over 50% of the world's species of plants and

    animals are found in the rainforest. Amazingly, only cover 6 -

    7% of the total land surface on Earth is covered by rainforest.

    On average, there are between 20 to 80 different species of

    trees per acre. There is also a wide variety of animal life found

    in the rainforest. Many of the animals have special adaptations

    that allow them to live in the tropical conditions, but they would

    not survive outside of this ecosystem. These animals include

    but are not limited to Toucans, Parrots, Resplendant Quetzals,

    Sloths, Orangutans, Gorillas, Queen Alexandra Birdwing

    Butterflies, and Lemurs.

    There are also indigenous cultures of people that live in and

    depend on the rainforest. Some of the tribes that can be found

    here include the Yanomami and Kayapo tribes of the Amazon,

    the Huli of Papau New Guinea, and the Pygmies of Central

    Africa. Some tribes have had little, if any, contact with outside

    civilizations, while others seek to legally protect the lands on

    which they live. These cultures have adapted to the conditions

    of the rainforest, and have a deep understanding of the

    ecosystem. They often have knowledge of medicinal herbs and

    plants, and understand how to cultivate rainforest land without

    upsetting the balance of nutrients in the soils.

    Deforestation

    Much of the world's rainforest has been severely impacted by

    human activities. These activities usually include deforestation

    for the purposes of logging, growing crops, urban settlement, or

    raising farm animals such as cattle. As the population of the

    world continues to increase, the amount of deforestation of the

    rainforest may also continue to rise.

    Unfortunately, we are losing many species of plants and

    animals found in the rainforest due to these activities. Potential

    medicines that have not even been discovered yet may be at

    risk of never being found due to deforestation. Many rainforest

    animals are endangered due to these activities. Cultures of

    indigenous peoples are also at risk of losing their way of life.

    There are currently many organizations working to protect the

    rainforest. Some of them include the Rainforest Alliance, The

    Nature Conservancy, and the Rainforest Action Network. These

    sites provide information on ways we can all help to conserve

    one of the world's most valuable and endangered ecosystems.

    Summary

    The rainforest is a vital lifeline of Earth, as well as one of the

    most unique ecosystems of our planet. It contains a wide

    variety of plants, animals and people, and all are important to

    the balance of nature. While it is not too late to save the

    rainforest ecosystems of the world, there is still much work to

    be done if we will succeed in protecting this valuable resource.
