Deforestation doesn't mean only loosing trees. It also has a great impact on the environment. Many living creatures depend on trees, so when these disappear, animals will also disappear. Unfortunately, many developing countries in the tropical regions are trying to improve their economies with the inadequate use of there forests. In this project we are going to work about the reasons and consequences of the deforestation, and how we can collaborate to reduce it.

At the beginning of this work it was easy to identify causes and consequences of deforestation, but to locate the information was a little more difficult. At present we are thinking what socio/economic consequences deforestation may have and what we would be able to do about it. We were impressed about how fast biodiversity may decrease due to deforestation. It also attracted our attention that over 80% of European forest fires occur in Spain, our country.
