At one time forests dominated Earth’s landmass. Today, less than half of forests remain. Deforestation is a real issue affecting not only our environment, but our survival as a species. In partnership with the Global Environment Facility, we explore how we can slow the devastating effects of deforestation. #deforestation #sustainability #environment
