Sign the Petition to

Carlos Minc, Brazilian Environment Minister

We demand that you reduce the clearing of the Amazon so that we can have a more sustainable future. We demand that you reduce the amount of people cutting down the forests by creating heritage zones where logging and cattle ranching is not permitted. Let’s keep the Amazon as a major tourist attraction of South America for future generations to come. The forest has taken thousands of years to grow and would be devastating if we had to wake up and it was gone. Let’s make a change and help save the forest.

At the current rate of deforestation the world’s forest will be completely gone within the next 100 years. Deforestation has proven to be a major contributor to global warming and that it has contributed to more than 20% of all greenhouse gas emissions. More than 70% of all known animals and plant species reside in the rainforests and if we keep destroying the forests many of the world’s rare and endangered animals will become extinct. We need to stop deforestation as soon as we can because the effects of constant deforestation are alarmingly. They will keep on doing damage destroying our forests unless something is done about it. Every day there is around 36 football fields of rain forest that are destroyed, much of this would be done in the Amazon due to the dense forest and high demand for local jobs.

If we don’t cause a stop to this now the effects will be catastrophic and it will cause deadly results. So make a change today and help keep our rainforests here for future generations ensuring that heritage zones are created and enforced in the Amazon. So declare the zones and any fines or profits made from the heritage zones can be used to restore the already destroyed forests by re-planting trees in the hope that it will someday grow back close to its original state.

Ryan
