Deforestation

Do you love animals that live in the forest,) for example, snakes, frogs, deers, monkeys, jaguars, Orangatangs)?
Well, these animals homes are being cut down. Deforestation is the permanent removal of trees to make room for something besides forest. This can include clearing the land for agriculture or grazing, or using the timber for fuel, construction or manufacturing, Or even to plant palm tree’s. Did you know that between 15-17 percent of the Amazon rainforest has been lost? Rainforests like the Amazon are very important because they help us survive.    Life could not exist on Earth without trees because they produce most of the oxygen that humans and wildlife breathe. Did you know humans can not live without bees or ants or birds? I would recommend watching these video’s to improve your knowledge.

2 sisters called Alice and Anna were having an afternoon stroll, when Alice spotted a beautiful garden. “Anna, look at that pleasant-looking garden! gasped Alice. “Wow!” exclaimed Anna. Therefore, the two sisters decided to walk through the garden. Anna saw a rainbow rose while was smelling the jasmines. Since Alice was observing the orchid, she decided not to tell her. After a while, Alice realised Anna was missing so she decided to look. Finally, she came to the rainbow rose but consequently the scent made her sleepy. When she awoke, she found Anna standing beside her. “Alice, we have to go. The Rainbow Queen is coming for us,” whispered Anna. She silently explained who the Rainbow Queen was and came up with a plan. From the top of a hill, they started on the plan. They collected water from a pond. And ran down the hill to a Rainbow castle which was obviously the Rainbow queen’s palace. Running to her room Alice secretly poured the water on her while she was trying to capture Anna. The queen melted. They knew rainbows fade away when it rains. Grabbing the Rainbow Queen’s wand Alice ran to the hill and found an anonymous letter. “Open it”. The letter said, “Dear Alice and Anna, to get back from the land of nature, place the rainbow queen’s wand in water and say, “Rainbow wand, Rainbow wand, take us home as soon as you can.” They managed to reach home safely. “Where have you been?” I’ve been looking for you everywhere!” said their Mum. “Well it’s a long story”replied Anna and Alice.
