Doing a middle school research paper is not necessarily kids’ stuff

If there is some smart aleck out there who is going to tell an eighth grader that doing a middle school research paper is kids’ stuff, let me tell you, he is way off the mark.

How The Rainforest is Being Developed

How The Rainforest is Being Developed
The rainforest ecosystem is under threat from destruction by humans. Many countries and businesses want to take advantage and exploit the resources of the forest. Many organisations want to develop the rainforest as well. The many reason for exploitations are: Logging: Expensive wood such as mahogany is cut down by logging companies and exported across the world. [image]Cattle Ranching: Large areas of the forest have been cleared for raising cattle, which can then be sold for their meat. Roads & Buildings: Land in the forest needs to be cleared to make space for industrial buildings, accommodation for the workers and for building roads to get goods in and out of the region. Mining: Many rainforests have huge reserves of minerals such as gold, iron ore and copper. These are used in industries throughout the world. To get at these minerals, vast stretches of the forest must be destroyed and mines excavated. Mainly the rainforest is used for resources, sometimes industries might develop the rainforest but soon deforestation occurs and issues occur.
