World Rainforest Day

Date When celebrated : This holiday is always observed on June 22

World Rainforest Day is a recently new special holiday. It was created in 2017 to raise awareness of the importance of rainforests around the world for the health of the Earth, and ultimately for your health, too. Rainforests are decreasing at an alarming rate. It is time to pay attention to this vital asset, and reverse the trend of shrinking rain forest areas.

Rainforests do many good things for the earth. 20% of the oxygen we breath, comes from rain forests. They offer many other benefits, including absorption of harmful carbon dioxide, and stabilizing climates. About half the plant and animal species on the planet call rainforests their home. The diversity, and potential of these areas, is nothing short of  astonishing.

Rainforests exist all over the world. We all know the biggest, the Amazon located in South America. Most of us know of the tropical rainforests in southeast Asia, too. However, there are many rainforests around the world, Some of them are in places you would never think of. There are rainforests in the United States, including Hawaii, the Appalachians, and even Alaska. There is a rainforest on Vancouver Island in Canada, too.  

Did you know? While we think of rainforests in tropical areas, not all rainforests are in the tropics.

The History and Origin of World Rainforest Day:

This is a more recent special holiday. It was created in 2017 by the "Rainforest Partnership". The Rainforest Partnership is an international, non-profit organization based in Austin, Texas. They are dedicated to protecting and regenerating tropical rainforests around the world.
