Between 2000 and 2012, 2.3 million square kilometres (890,000 sq mi) of forests around the world were cut down. Only 6.2 million square kilometres (2.4 million square miles) remain of the original 16 million square kilometres (6 million square miles) of forest that formerly covered the Earth. An area the size of a football pitch is cleared from the Amazon rainforest every minute, with 136 million acres (55 million hectares) of rainforest cleared for animal agriculture overall.
All of this, and more calls out for some action. And that is what we are doing. We are helping all of you help yourselves. If we don’t plant trees, if we don’t give the respect that is due to Nature, we will be next in terms of major extinction.
There are many reasons for getting the forest cut down. Sometimes they are cut down for fuel, while other times it can be for pasture, agriculture etc. But removal of trees more than the afforestation has landed a major blow to the delicate balance of biodiversity.
Effects of this, will be catastrophic. No percipitation, no runoffs for grounwater level maintenance, landslide in the hilly areas, more humid and hot air,global warming and what not. The list is endless.
So, we need to plant trees, Period. That is what we inspire people to do here, at Wings for Wild.If you ever thought about making a diffrence, doing something for the environment,then you have come to the right place. We too, believe in doing something about the problem rather than feeling sorry about it.
So, join us or help us. Your choice.But we need to do the good things and would really love for you to be with us, in person or in other forms of support, whatever you feel upto right now. We have to paint the barren lands green. We have to save planet Earth.
Feel us by joining the fight. Come work at ground zero where we don’t just plant a tree, we plant hope for the generations to come.
