Rainforest Species Without Homes

Let's donate

It's estimated that over 150 acres of rainforest are lost per minute. This severe loss of canopies is not just giving animals no place to live — it’s changing the course of our planet’s future.

For many RAINFOREST species, such as chimpanzees and orangutans, deforestation is a human-made problem that hits too close to home. Mining, logging, and palm oil industries are the primary contributors responsible for destroying their lush, green habitats, making it harder for animals to survive.

Rainforest species face an uncertain future

Many species, including birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, depend on stable habitats for survival. But RAINFOREST loss and fragmented lands are now changing more than just the environment. Scientists report genetic diversity is lower for chimpanzees living in areas of western African where critical environments have shrunk. Four subspecies of chimpanzee are already labeled as endangered. As long as deforestation and fragmentation continue to threaten their genetic diversity, as well as the genetic diversity of other species, extinction remains inevitable.
