Trees help to slow climate change. They also improve air quality in urban areas. Don't cut down trees for a new home or for yet more agricultural land to feed yet more animals for meat, or for palm oil plantations. Your daily choices (what you buy) affect what happens to trees.

Note that soy is fed mainly to beef cattle, so beef is the cause of that as well. Just four commodities—beef, soy, palm oil, and wood products—drive the majority of global deforestation. And consumers can help stop it.

Right now, only 15 percent of the world's rainforests are still intact. Once pristine rain forest in Borneo, the land on the left has been clear-cut for a palm oil plantation. Everytime people cut into forests, they create "edges," where people come into contact with animals — and their viruses. Tropical regions also have a greater diversity of viruses. By 2050, more than half of the world's population is projected to live in the tropics and subtropics.

After 10 years of conservation work in Indonesia's Sebangau National Park, the WWF announced in November 2015 in a statement that orangutan numbers in the reserve — which holds the largest wild orangutan population in the world — had risen by 7 percent since 2007, with 5,826 individuals recently counted. However, ongoing efforts will be required to ensure the species' survival, as 70 percent of orangutans live outside of protected areas and are threatened by logging and agricultural…
