Image of the Day: For This Forest, It’s Easy Being Green
The Iwokrama forest in Guyana is protected by the Conservation Trust Fund, which provides funds for managing the country’s intact protected tropical rainforests that are mostly untouched by humans. This is the first of its kind in Guyana. Having an ecosystem untouched by humans and industrial progress is a good thing for the climate. Deforestation is rampant in many parts of the world and generate one-fifth of all greenhouse gases emitted, according to Greenpeace UK.
