Deforestation is a well known problem in Brazil and Costa Rica. Besides its obvious impact on the environment,

it also has a big effect on the ground. The roots of the trees are a support system for the soil, so when the trees are cut down, this support system is not longer there which will shift the land.

Your impact

Deforestation is a big problem in Costa Rica. At the same time, only 13% of indigenous Costa Rican youth finish school. Their knowledge about the climate and their contribution in it is thus low and has to be changed.

 

In Brazil as well there are many problems, because their forest cover went down with more than 20%. Awareness in local communities is needed to start a long-term change.
