In this day and age when people are truly beginning to understand the consequences of not caring for our environment, the thrust to “go green” is slowly but surely gaining ground. While it’s good to reduce, reuse and recycle, another, there is still so much we can do, especially on a larger scale. Deforestation continues unabated especially in countries in the world where rules are lax and money can bend them.
These photos of forests are not Photoshopped. They showcase our forests in all their amazing wonder and beauty. Hopefully, these stunning images will serve to inspire those who have the power to stop their destruction.
