World Rainforest Day
World Rainforest Day was created in 2017 by the Rainforest Partnership. It’s aim is to remind society of how important rainforests are for our Earth and teach people that they are one of the most influential and cost-effective climate change reduction tools that we have.
Rainforests are one of the most important ecosystems we have. They absorb carbon dioxide, are home to approximately half of the Earth’s flora and fauna species and play a key role in stabilising our climate.
Not only do these rainforests protect biodiversity and our climate, but they are the home of millions of people who hold invaluable knowledge, cultural traditions and customs, and incredible diversity. These rainforests are irreplaceable to around 350 indigenous and ethnic groups who are directly reliant on these ecosystems for a variety of reasons.
