INTERNATIONAL DAY OF FORESTS

Forests as Ecosystems

Forests serve as magnificent ecosystems that support diverse life forms, including plants, animals, and even microorganisms. They provide habitat for countless species, fostering biodiversity and contributing to the overall balance of nature. Trees play a crucial role in absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen through photosynthesis, which not only sustains life but also helps mitigate climate change.

  • Forests act as a natural carbon sink, absorbing and storing vast amounts of carbon dioxide, a major greenhouse gas responsible for global warming.

  • According to the United Nations, approximately 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity exists in forests, emphasizing their significance in preserving the delicate web of life.

  • Forests also act as natural filters, purifying the air we breathe and the water we consume.
