However, there is still some hope for the future of the rainforests. A park in Madagascar, called the new Ranomafana National Park, set aside rainforest land for preservation. Businesses outside the park have been set up to make money for maintaining the park.
The Brazilian government set aside four large Brazil nut harvesting areas for farmers. This is so farmers can make money off of the forest without destroying it.
Politics sometimes come in handy. Over a decade ago, large environmental groups in the United States and Canada got together and raised a lot of money for rainforest preservation. They went to the Costa Rican government and promised to pay off half of the countries debt, if the government would set aside some of its rainforest for parks and reserves. The country agreed, and rainforest was saved.
Efforts to help rainforests have increased across the globe. The quicker people work to save the rainforests, the more rainforests will be saved.
