Deforestation in Madagascar is a very important issue which can not be put off or ignored because if this happens all of the rainforests in Madagascar will be gone within the next 40 years.
Currently 90% of the rainforests in Madagascar have already been destroyed because of logging, slash and burn agriculture, mining, etc. Madagascar is also home to hundreds of endemic species found no where else on earth, if the rainforests are all cut down then many endangered species will also go extinct.
We, the undersigned, demand that the United Nations come together to form a solution to end deforestation in Madagascar.
The Stop Deforestation in Madagascar petition to UN was written by Leila Shirey and is in the category Environment at GoPetition.
