Deforestation refers to cutting, clearing, and removal of rainforest or related ecosystems into less bio-diverse ecosystems.
Loss of biodiversity of microbes (bacteria), plants, insects, animals, indigenous peoples. Habitat fragmentation Soil erosion when trees and plants are removed; the rain water washes the nutrients in the top soil away Desertification (dry, hot, arid conditions), Changing climate condition affect endemic species (native species which can only live in specific environmental and habitat conditions),
Climate change - more carbon dioxide is released into the atmosphere, thus increasing the effects of global warming.
Use recycle paper. Save electricity by turning off lights, TV, radio, computer, etc when you are not using them. Save water by taking quick showers (turning off the water while you soap up or brush your teeth ) and then turning it back on to rinse quickly
