We all know that rainforests are the home to millions of animals and plant species. Amazingly these animals and plant species are not found anywhere else in the world. Rainforest all over the world covers only 7 % of the total land of the earth which is a great area. This percentage of land in the earth is the home to 50% of the known animal species around the world. Most of these rainforests are located in the Latin America, Africa and Asia. Normally the rainforest receive an annual rainfall of about 100 inches which provides these rainforest animals’ food and shelter for the whole year.
Rainforest regions also have a great climate for vegetation. Tress grow very well in these regions and in some areas you will see that the trees up to 200ft tall. The climates in these regions are great for vegetation to thrive. The tall trees are great to form canopy high above the ground. Rainforests are always full of greens and you will hardly see any color there. All over the year it is full of green plants. People say that everything in rainforests are blooming and grooming. You will find large bunch of trees all around you and you will be almost covered by green all around when you enter a rainforest.

Rainforests are very essential for us because most of the medicines we use now for treating illness and diseases come from these rainforests. The components of these medicines come from the plants which grow in the rainforests. The flowering plants in these regions are full of medicinal qualities and are also used for making effective medicines. But the fact is that rainforests are in great danger now because of massive deforestation. Statistics say that mostly half of the total rainforest in the world has been destroyed already and if this continues, within a very short time rain forest will almost vanish out from the earth. This is not only a danger for us but also a great danger for the animals living here. We humans are the culprit behind this destruction process. Like these innocent animals many human beings also rely on these rainforests but we don’t think about that. The villages near the rainforests burn out forests to get farming lands. In some places, mineral rich rainforests have been removed for mining process. Most of these destroyed areas are now used by the humans for their own purposes.
The bio-diversity level of the rainforest is very high and in most cases it is seen that a single bush of rainforests consists of some thousands of ant species. Amazon is the largest rainforest in the world and it records a huge range of animal presence. Here is we giving an account of the numbers of species those record is found. 5600 Fish Species, 1300 Birds, 430+ Mammals, 1000+ Amphibians, 400+ Reptiles which a great amount. Just a single rainforest in the world consists of so many animal species so now you can assume what the total account of animal species in the rainforests around the world will be. This large amount of animal presence makes out a mysterious environment all over.
Rainforests are now really in dangerous situation and so the animals leaving in these rainforests. It is our duty to protect this nature’s creation just for the good sake of us. If one day all the forests all over the world will be destroyed how we can live and slowly all the animals in this world will lose its existence which is very unfortunate for the whole planet as well. Protect the wildlife as well as protect the nature from any harm.
