Rainforests are something the world cannot afford to take for granted any longer.
These precious environments, found in numerous continents, are homes to swathes of endangered species as well as indigenous tribes.
But deforestation, caused by industry, has wiped out an insanely large proportion of them in recent years.
What causes deforestation? What effect is it having on our planet and the beings that occupy it?
Between 2000 and 2012, 2.3 million square kilometres (890,000 sq mi) of forests around the world were cut down. That has led to the devastation of several species of animal, flora, fauna and homes of indigenous tribes.
This rate of deforestation is not slowing down despite international attempts to stop the causes of deforestation in its tracks.
But the number of causes of deforestation make it difficult to tackle.
Currently the palm oil industry is one of the worst offenders, as the tree which produces the oil thrives best in Africa, Indonesia, Asia, North America and South America where rainforests tends to be.
