Earth’s Vital Organs

Ecosystems are Earth’s vital organs, performing and exchanging all life-giving functions. Ecosystems do this because of the interrelationships of their biodiversity. No land-based ecosystem is as biodiverse, vital, multi-faceted, or globally influential as tropical forests. Like our hearts, lungs, sweat glands, skin, and reproductive systems tropical forests co-determine the future of human life. People often talk about “saving the world” but protecting and restoring tropical forests is tantamount to “saving humanity.” Over the last 50 years rapid human expansion has caused the destruction of roughly 50% of Earth’s tropical forests. Currently we are losing tropical forests at a rate of about 1 acre per second.
