Rainforest Logging Game
This African rainforest game takes you deep into the heart of the rainforest where you have to take on the loggers and their lorries to save the trees. Although the rate of logging and deforestation in the Congo area has slowed in recent years,
although still a disturbing just under 4000 square miles a year, the building of logging roads has continued with these roads opening up vast swathes of previously unreachable land spreading the incidents of poaching and commercial hunting as well as destruction of natural habitats which has seen a 60 percent drop in the region's forest elephant population in less than ten years.
Equally concerning is that
international agreements to halt or slow the pace of deforestation
have often been ignored and, perhaps worse, international logging
companies have entered into social contracts with local
populations promising to build schools and other infrastructure in
return for logging concessions, but these social resources have,
in the main, failed to materialise despite the logging continuing
In this rainforest logging game take
on those loggers then use the internet to find out more about the
rainforests of the planet and what you can do to protect them,
their populations of both humans and wildlife, and the planet
itself for the future.
