Costa Rica has about 25% of its total area in reserves and national parks; it has lost 76% of its tropical forests. In addition to tropical rainforests (which have constant warmth and humidity; over 100 inches of rain per year), we have tropical cloud forests (which are cool with continual mists and rain). We also have tropical dry forests. These forests are wet for half of the year and then dry for the remaining half; trees even lose their leaves. In Costa Rica a lot of the forest has been defoersted for agricultural production of bananas, coffee, pineapples, palm oil, and teak.

Pen Pal Letter: Imagine you're in class and your teacher reads an article about a U.S. company which is deforesting a rainforest in Brazil. Your teacher encourages you and your classmates to write letters to the company. Using the information you have learned in this lesson, write your letter to convince the company to STOP the deforestation. Use the facts you have learned to support and provide evidence for your position. Write your letter in the Comments Section after this lesson. You and your Pen Pal will read each other's letters and provide positive feedback to each other.

Thank you, this website was very helpful to me, it was clear and straight, I understood everything (I am only 13) There should be more websites like this, that make you not only realise things but try to help you to solve them.
Keep up the good work!Raise awareness

the cause of deforsteation has gone out of hand , and we should start finding ways to stop .... there has been a lot of climate change which is unusual due to the fact of global warming and the ozon layer! sO think smart and recycle paper
