Subject: Dwindling forest cover- a threat to the bio reserves

Dear Sir
Kindly publish the following views of mine in the appropriate columns of your esteemed daily.

It is a fact that forest cover all over the world is fast dwindling. For instance. during 2000-2005 more than 4  million acres of forests disappeared ; 3.9 to 5,00.00 acres have also gone forever.

The dwindling forest cover resulted in a serious threat to various animals. For instance, 50% fish stand  threatened. 20% of them are vulnerable to being endangered ; 10% endangered and 20% critically  endangered. Amphibians, to the extent of 70%, are no1 endangered. But 30% of them do stand endangered.  12% of them are endangered ; 8% critically endangered and 10% are vulnerable to being endangered.  Regarding reptiles, 60% stand endangered. 30% are vulnerable to being endangered, 17% are endangered  and 13% critically endangered. 10% birds stand endangered and 25% mammals are threatened.

Dwindling forest reserves are a potent danger to food, fodder. timber, water etc. Soil erosion takes place Flora and fauna disappears which causes the flow of water direct to the oceans and not into the ground.  This doesn't recharge the ground water table. Most importantly, there is a threat of droughts, famines etc.  and scarcity of rain. Weather patterns have changed due to global warming These effects have started  showing their results in the form of climate change and consequent problems This has forced the world  countries to seriously think about conservation of forests and other means.

Forests are the sustainable sources of keeping biodiversity intact. So their disappearance means threat to  humanity. Therefore, they need to be generated to rehabilitate the environment and ecosystem. 

Yours faithfully
