About the Tropical Forests

Tropical forests cover only 6% of the Earth’s surface, yet they are among the most biodiverse places on the planet. These forests are home to 80% of the world’s documented species, making them a crucial habitat for a vast array of flora and fauna. In addition to their ecological importance, tropical forests are vital for the Indigenous Peoples and local communities who depend on them for their livelihoods and cultural heritage.
