According to World Wildlife Fund data, we are losing 12 to 15 million hectares (46,332 to 57,915 square miles) of the world’s forests every year.  In addition to killing biodiversity, deforestation is a major contributor to climate change, accounting for approximately 15 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions.
