Forest foods are a regular part of rural diets and serve as safety nets in periods of food scarcity.
There are several organizations that are doing efforts to preserve and restore forests.
Some of these are Greenpeace, World Wide Fund for Nature, Community Forestry International, and Conservation International.
These organisms save farmers billions of dollars every year, and reduce the need for chemical pesticides.
Wild animals and edible insects from forests are the main source of protein for many people.
More and more trees were being cut to make way for buildings, roads, and houses.
While industries became successful, living conditions for animals became worse. Several species of both plants and animals have gone extinct.
Trees are being cut for the production of wood and timber which are used in building structures.
They are also used as firewood to produce fire that will keep humans from the cold and wild animals.
Trees are essential to humans and animals in every way.
They give life, food and shelter to every human and animal.
