Did you know after millions of years, the Malaysian rainforest is one of the most biodiverse systems on the planet?

Unfortunately now, it needs your help to live to see another day.

Dear Friend,

Our rainforests have evolved over millions of years to become the incredibly complex environment it is today. In fact, it's an immense store of living, renewable natural resources that provide us with basic materials for food, clothing, fuel, fiber and medicine, as well as shelter and a range of ecosystem services critical to our survival. However, the tropical rainforest is an intricate and fragile system. And when everything is so interdependent, even upsetting a small portion can lead to the eventual destruction of the whole.
The world's rainforests are currently disappearing at a rate of 6000 acres every hour (this is about 4000 football fields per hour). When these forests are cut down, the plants and animals that live in the forests are destroyed, and some species are at risk of being made extinct. Further, as the large-scale harvesting of lumber from the rain forests continues, the balance of the earth's eco-system is disrupted. We need the rain forests to produce oxygen and clean the atmosphere to help us breathe. We also know that the earth's climate can be affected, as well as the water cycle. Rainforests also provide us with many valuable medicinal plants, and may be a source of a cure from some deadly diseases.
