Hello, I am a Kayapo.
Hello, I am a rancher.
Why are you cutting down my home so you can have space for your ranch?
I am cutting down the trees because ranching is more important than a forest.
That is not true. The Amazon Rainforest produces about 20% of Earth's oxygen. It is also the most diverse rainforest in the world because it is home to many different species of plants and animals.
It isn't just ranchers that are deforesting the Amazon Basin. Loggers have also cleared large areas of it. In 1992, rainforests covered 12% of the Earth's surface and now they only cover 5%. People are also starting to operate illegal sawmills and other things in the Amazon and clearing more area.
Really? I didn't know that.
I'm sorry that I cut down part of the rainforest for my ranch. I will stop spreading it and go somewhere else.
