Discussions Discussion Deforestation SOS
Dylan McDonald, Feb. 12, 2013

Trees in jungles are being cut down in order to maintain the worlds population. We use too much wood for many thing such as houses, benches, warmth, etc. It’s amazing how much wood we use in our day to day lives in america. Also deforestation is destroying animals homes and driving them out of their homes and even to extinction.

    Lol. Coming to a store near you: rainforest relaxation CDs. Now with saws and jackhammers added in the background!
    Maybe promote the usage of recycled paper? Like for notebooks, etc.?

    Definitely wood is a big part of our lives, however animals are too. In my opinion animals are more important than our necessities with wood. Therefore we should find an alternative to the wood so that we can reduce the amount of wood consumption and provide animals a home.

    I really enjoyed this article! I find it very unnerving that our trees are being cut down in order to make way for new housing developments and the “improvement” of society. It is ironic at how humans believe they are doing what is best for their kind by creating more apartment complexes and hoping that the world population will be sufficed. The irony expounds because the earth is what sustains us. Without our natural resources, fresh water, and oxygen-producing trees, we would be in a much worse state than where we are now. I think that humans should take a step to stop deforestation, to protect the creatures that we share this planet with, to protect our environment, and to protect our lives! Let's start cutting down on wood products as much as possible! Instead, walk an extra foot to the recycling bin to recycle your papers, double side your papers, and try to unsubscribe from any extra mail that you have been receiving! These simple steps can have tremendous impacts for the welfare of our world!

Discussions Discussion Life on the Reef: Amazing World of Coral Fish…
Maddie D, May 9, 2012

So I’d love to visit here to explore the beautiful coral reefs depicted, but that doesn’t look very possible.

I wish that Indonesia’s government would try to help with the growing number of illegal fishermen who use explosives and cyanide to kill and stun their prey. Do the fishermen even realize what they are doing to the underwater landscape? Do they realize howthey are affecting so many more organisms than just their prey and coral?

Action clearly needs to be taken against these fishermen and their crimes that are changing a once-beautiful travel stop.

Coral Reefs are depleting in result of careless human interaction. The largest problem is that people are destroying reefs by bottom trawling. This scraps the ocean floor and destroys many habitats for other organisms. Also, pollution is a large issue. The most common is oil spills and carelessness of trash dumping.

Coral Reefs are dying off due to human activities such as: oil spills, bottom trawling, and blasting of harbors. It is truly a spectacle and the more coral reefs die off, the more fish will die off because there shelter is destroyed. The more we use natural resources the more we kill the resources overuse is possible.

    It's fantastic this video!!! I was snorkeling in the tropics this summer and saw the damage that slight increases in water temperature, due to global warming, can have on coral reefs at shallow depths.
