How do Humans affect my biome?
• Humans are the main cause of affecting the Amazon
Rainforest. The main reason is probably because
humans cut down so many trees in the Rainforest. In
Brazil the Amazon tropical rainforest loss is 120,000
trees per year which is all the destructions humans do
to the Amazon Rainforest.
• Another reason why humans destroy the rainforest is
that they don’t just destroy the plants they destroy the
animals too. For example if someone kills a Jaguar just
for it’s skin that is bad because then the number of
Jaguars will decrease little by little and before you
know it they will be extinct.

How can we solve the problem?
• We can tell humans and warn them that if we
continue doing this the Amazon will have no
trees left so if there are no trees there will be
no life left.
• When people cut down trees at least they
should replace them with new seeds.
