Amount of Forest Loss per Year in Hectares in the Last 20 Years

Our planet is at a critical juncture, facing an ecological emergency of unprecedented proportions.

Each year and for the past 20 years, more than 2 million acres of forest are lost due to rampant deforestation, driven by relentless industrialization, agriculture, and logging.

This is directly eroding global biodiversity destabilizing the environmental equilibrium, and intensifying the dire effects of climate change.
