Can you imagine your life without trees & forests?

March 21st was the International Day of Forests - a day for raising awareness about deforestation of the Earth’s forest and trees. People around the world celebrate it by doing different activities such as tree planting, art work and spreading the word on social media.

"Forests and trees sustain and protect us, providing clean air and water, safeguarding biodiversity and acting as a buffer against climate change. For many people, they also offer food, shelter and employment. It is up to us in turn to sustain and protect our forests -- our future is at stake." FAO
