Children's Tropical Forests (U.K.) Fact Sheet The Physical Environment Tropical rainforests are located in warm humid places around the world's equator. Average daily temperature is about 25 degrees Celsius. Yearly rainfall is at least 1,500 mm, however some forests receive as much as 10,000 mm! Most of the rain falls during the monsoon, "the rainy season" between mid July and mid September. On most days in the Tropics the rainforests receive 12 hours of sunshine providing plenty of energy for plant growth. But they grow in very poor soil as millions of years of rain has washed away the nutrients. Conveniently, the rainforest has adapted to these conditions and gets its nutrients by recycling the dead plants that fall to the forest floor. Micro-organisms rapidly break down this matter into usable nutrients like calcium, nitrogen and phosphorus. Return to Top

1. Northern Forests The Foundation aims to maintain healthy forested ecosystems through the heart of the country. As such, this program will support efforts to protect, preserve and sustain forests in provinces with significant opportunities for large-scale conservation, with an emphasis on intact northern forests. Our primary objective is to establish large, buffered and connected wilderness areas across the country, based on the principles of conservation biology. We wish to ensure that biodiversity and wilderness values are maintained on the landscapes linking these areas together. In so doing, we wish to maintain the ecological, aesthetic, and economic values of these forests. Priority areas for this program include the forests of northern Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador. These areas offer significant opportunities for conservation gains over the next five to ten years, and have very limited conservation capacity at the present time. Specific activities funded may include:
  • participation in land use planning processes

Posted to the web January 21, 2003 New York The head of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) today pledged to help Kenya with environmental and developmental issues facing the new administration in Nairobi. Among the projects under discussion between UNEP Executive Director Klaus Toepfer and new Environment Minister Newton Kulundu was one aimed at better management of the land and water resources flowing from Mount Kenya. The multi-million-dollar project, designed to tackle soil erosion polluting the Tana River and clogging up dams and reservoirs, will also back efforts by the Kenyan Government to reduce illegal water removal in the rivers and streams feeding the waterway. The scheme aims to work with local communities and farmers to balance the need for agricultural production with those of wildlife in and around the Mount Kenya area.

Got wood? But at what cost? Find out how are forests are faring.
The wood from the trees

Rainforests are in big trouble, and the western world is to blame. Today, our timber consumption is so high that vast swathes of tropical woodland are disappearing on a daily basis - threatening the survival of wildlife species and the livelihoods and homes of indigenous people.
The bad and the ugly
The UK is one of the least forested of all developed countries, and yet one of the world's largest consumers of timber. It is estimated that we import about 25 million cubic metres a year, including tropical hardwoods and timber from temperate and boreal forest in North America, Scandinavia and Europe. The facts and the fears
  • On average, each person in the UK uses 30 times the volume of wood and paper products as someone in India.
  • The rate at which the Amazon rainforest is disappearing almost doubled between 1994 and 1995. In 1995, 29,059 square kilometres of forest were lost - an area the size of Belgium.
  • The demand for wood products is set to grow dramatically over the next decade - by almost 60 %

Why Protect Forests through 'Debt-for-Nature' Swaps? Environment Home What We Do Protecting... Why Protect Forests... Developing countries often cut down their tropical forests to generate quick cash to meet their immediate domestic needs, including paying off debts owed to industrialized nations, such as the United States. These countries are sacrificing long-term, global resources for short-term, financial needs. To help bridge this incentives gap, the U.S. Congress passed the Tropical Forest Conservation Act (TFCA) in 1998. The TFCA forgives debt owed to the United States by developing nations if they agree to set aside large portions of protected forestlands as conservation and parklands. It expands the "debt-for-nature" swaps set up for Latin America and the Caribbean under the Enterprise for the Americas Initiative (EAI), extending the swaps into Asia and Africa and significantly increasing EAI management efforts. The Clinton Administration has chosen USAID to house the Secretariat for the15-member Presidentially appointed board to oversee and manage EAI and TFCA activities throughout the world. The Secretariat will review and audit EAI and TFCA trust funds, advise on sustainable development and institution building, and coordinate efforts with other USAID and U.S. Government programs.

forests. A winters. The trees in these forests survive the winters by sheddingtheir leaves in the fall and becoming dormant until spring.
Forests A temperate deciduous forest is characterized by a collection of broad- leaved trees such as hickory, maple, oak, poplar, and sycamore; the scrubs and bushes that make up an understory canopy layer; and finally, an herbaceous moss ground layer. Rainfall must be adequate (thirty to sixty inches annually) and evenly dispersed throughout the year. These forests grow in areas where the climate is fairly moderate with significant seasonal climate changes which include long and warm summers, and cold, but not too severe, winters. The trees in these forests survive the winters by shedding their leaves in the fall and becoming dormant until spring. Today, Indiana's forests, often referred to as "woods," are a "small fragment left from a vast green expanse, rich, varied, and ecologically resilient” (Petty 110). Most of the forests in Indiana are categorized as secondary growth forests—that is, they were at one point cleared by human beings and now have gone through, or are going through, the process of regrowth. This process is not a quick or an easy one. First, a layer of early weeds, forbs, and grasses gives way to larger brush such as briars and goldenrods. Then a collection of young saplings begins to take form. Anywhere from ten to fifty years later, small trees, shrubs, and flowering herbs begin to flourish.

Environment Division Tel: Fax: Land, Forests and Oceans Land Desertification Desertification is the broad term for a variety of types of land degradation in arid, semi-arid and dry sub-humid areas. It results from climate variation and human activities. It is estimated that over 15% of the world’s population and 25% of the world’s total land area are affected by land degradation and the desertification process. While the adverse effects of desertification are most severe in Africa it is an issue of global concern. I n response to the threat of desertification, the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification in Those Countries Experiencing Serious Drought and/or Desertification, Particularly in Africa (CCD) was agreed in 1992. The CCD has been ratified by over 170 countries, including 13 Pacific Island countries since it came into force in December 1996. Rt Hon Helen Clark announced New Zealand’s accession to the CCD during the UN Millennium Summit in September 2000. New Zealand’s accession demonstrates a commitment to the needs of those countries which are affected by desertification, including those in the Pacific.

Mountain pine beetle management plan protects Alberta's forests
Alberta Sustainable Resource Development is monitoring mountain pine beetle activity along the Alberta/B.C. border and has noticed a significant increase in Banff and Jasper National Parks, Kananaskis Country and Willmore Wilderness Park since 1998. The department has developed a control plan to identify, treat and remove infested trees throughout the Bow Valley Wildland Park this year. Successful management of beetle infestations will help protect the biodiversity and wildlife habitats of Alberta's forests.
Sustainable Resource Development has developed a control plan to identify, treat and remove infested trees throughout the Bow Valley Wildland Park this year. Successful management of beetle infestations will help protect the biodiversity and wildlife habitats of Alberta's forests. The mountain pine beetle is one of the most destructive insect pests in our forests and has had a devastating effect on forests in B.C. The current epidemic of the mountain pine beetle in B.C. is affecting more than 9 million hectares of forest and it is estimated that the beetle has infested more than $9 billion worth of timber.
