BENEFITING: World Wildlife Fund

ORGANIZER: Luke

Melissa

THE STORY:

My goal is to raise $150 to help "Save the Rainforest" by February 23 because in doing so I will be helping Luke Jackson, the project organizer, who has tried and helped me since I joined Crowdrise and I would also, more importantly, be helping stop the destruction of such an important part of our eco-system! Help me help WWF stop the destruction of the rainforest to save the habitats of wonderful and exotic animals including but certainly not limited to the wild tiger that it is incredible danger of extinction (please see other project to help save tigers, specifically) and much more.

Everyday 80,000Acres Is Torn Down In The Amazon In Brazil

Global Warming Is Effecting Not Only Earth But Humans Aswell The Amazon Is Helping Prevent Global Warming It Also Is The Home To Over 200,000 Natives And Is The Habitat to Wildlife And Rare Plants If The Amazon Was Cut Down There Would Be Many Consquences
*Drought (Cause Global Warming)
*Desertification (Global Warming)
*North Pole Ice Caps Melting (Leading to that)
*Extinction Of Animals In The Amazon(Our Fault)
*Extinction Of Rare Plants That Can Help In Medicine(Less than 1% of plants in the amazon have been tested by scientists )

Also Some Fact About Why The Amazon Is Worth Keeping

At least 3000 fruits are found in the rainforests; of these only 200 are now in use in the Western World. The Indians of the rainforest use over 2,000.

The U.S. National Cancer Institute has identified 3000 plants that are active against cancer cells. 70% of these plants are found in the rainforest. Twenty-five percent of the active ingredients in today's cancer-fighting drugs come from organisms found only in the rainforest

More than 20 percent of the world oxygen is produced in the Amazon Rainforest.

In memory of my dad, who invented and manufactured ways of using sap from trees to make plastics without harming the tree. Several forests in Venezuela are happy and healthy because of my dad. I miss you, Daddy! 8 years ago
