Deforestation Facts

It's 8 AM on Sunday 7th August here in Britain, and this is the 18 hour marker.

Yes, between us, we've posted at least every 30 minutes for 18 hours so far, and there are still 6 hours to go! Please, don't shake your head like that at the back, you know you'd really like another post about deforestation wouldn't you?

Well, some facts on deforestation for you:

According to Prosser (1985) 200 years ago there were 1500 million hectares of rainforest. There was only 12% of that left by 1975.

According to National Geographic one hectare of Amazonian rainforest contains more plant species than the whole of Europe.

I thought you'd like to know those useful bits of information, maybe you'd like to make a pledge just to stop me from posting these facts on deforestation for you? Go on, you know you want to make a pledge really!
