NAME OF THE PROJECT : DEFORESTATION
TYPE OF THE PROJECT : SCIENCE
DURATION : 22nd July to 20th September 2013.
TEACHER GUIDE : M.REKHA
Forests and biodiversity is key to all life forms. The richer the diversity of life, the greater the opportunity for medical discoveries, economic development and adaptive responses to such new challenges as climate changes.
Deforestation is when humans remove or clear large areas of forest lands for non-forest use. These include clearing for farming purposes, ranching and urban use. In these cases, trees are never re-planted.
Since the industrial age, about half of world's original forests had been destroyed and millions of animals and living things have been endangered. Despite the improvements in education, information and general awareness of the importance of forests, deforestation has not reduced much, and there are still many more communities and individuals who still destroy forest lands for personal gains.
This project shows how the Forest has been destroyed, causes of deforestation and some of the points to overcome this problem researched by the students.
All the points discussed above are imparted during our assembly program as a project, which creates the awareness among the students.
