🌍 🌳Do you know the vital role of tropical forests in fighting global climate change? Every year, tropical forests the size of Portugal are lost. The carbon released from deforestation exceeds Europe's emissions. This impacts climate change in three ways: 1️⃣ Immediate carbon release from felled trees 2️⃣Loss of ongoing carbon sequestration from mature forests 3️⃣ Disrupted rain patterns causing droughts & fires. 🌿 Preserving is more cost-effective than restoring. Tree planting can't  replace conserving tropical forests, as restoration is complex, time and resource-intensive. On average, avoiding deforestation is 7-10 times more cost-effective than reforestation due to ecosystem intricacies and restoration's demanding process Discover more insights in our LinkedIn page👇 #ClimateChange #TropicalForests #Conservation #Nature

    By storing carbon dioxide in their trees and soils, tropical forests trap harmful greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.
