This series examines issues concerning the environment and the threats to our planet. This volume examines the world's tropical rainforests and their great variety of wildlife, showing why they are being destroyed and why it is important that we act soon to save them. It describes what we mean by a rainforest and where they are located. Their structure, wildlife and their plight are discussed, the threats of logging, agriculture and modern infrastructure. The author assesses the consequences of their destruction seen in climatic changes and the extinction of many species of animals. Finally he examines methods of halting the rapid rate of deforestation and suggests how rainforests can be protected. The book shows how we can all play a part in this, from large industries which sponsor rainforest reserves to individuals who can support campaigns to preserve the rainforests. The author has worked on many wildlife films and has written on the subject widely. He was the author of "Endangered Wildlife" in the "World Issues" series.
