Over thousands of years, jungle people have become especially adapted to life in the rainforest.
In the last century more change has occurred within tribal groups in the Amazon than ever before. In fact, there is probably
not a single tribe that has not been effected by the outside world. This has made tribes relatively venerable to outside
dieses like common colds and measles.
In the future I think the rainforest should be more sustainable by both tourists, logging companies, mining companies an
It should also be a fair decision so the logging companies have to agree with the government and the tribal people. Also
anyone found cutting down trees without an permit will get an 1000 pound on the spot fine , or if they don’t have the
money - go to jail!
At the present rate of tropical deforestation, the worlds remaining tropical rainforests will be gone in just 30 years!
As the worlds population increases the competition for land, food and recourses also increase, it appears that the worlds
rainforests will continue to fall at an increasingly fast rate.
By working together we can make a difference!
Peasant farmers also clear the rainforest to have land for planting, by cutting the forest and then in the dry season burning
what they have cut. We must do every thing we can to help protect the world remaining forests. - one important way to help
is to plant new tropical hardwood for harvests, so they wont be taken from the natural rainforest. As individuals, we may
feel insignificant, but by working together, we can make a difference, and being and example for others, we can multiply
By carrying out this project I have found out lots about the Amazon rainforest and the tribes within. I didnt realise how
dificult it was to live in the rainforest and how much i should value my home and all the luxury's i take for granted!
I have found the project hard because i had to find relevant information from a very wide range on the internet. But at
the same time easy , because all the information was there and i had help from school and my school books, I found the
overall design of my work enjoyable.
The next time I carry out an enquiry in geography I will carry out a comparision.
