An area of forest five times the size of Switzerland is cleared every year, putting an estimated 50,000 plant and animal species at risk of extinction. Vanishing Forests discusses the importance of the world's remaining forests and investigates why they are being cut down at such an alarming rate. Topical examples look at how deforestation has affected different regions of the world, and the countries, organizations and individuals working to prevent further damage.
