Madagascar

More than 90% of Madagascar's original forests have been destroyed, displacing entire animal species and taking away the Malagasy's ability to farm and live on the land.  Entire mangrove estuaries are gone, leaving the bare earth to wash away in the sea.

Haiti

Haiti is one of the most environmentally degraded counties on our planet.  More than 98% of Haiti's forests are already gone and 30% of the remaining trees are being destroyed each year.  This deforestation magnifies the effects of hurricanes and contributes to soil degradation which leaves people without any way to farm their food.

Indonesia

Indonesia is one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet. Among the 17,000 islands that make up Indonesia, there are 135 threatened mammal species. An estimated 40 million rural dwelling Indonesians rely heavily on the biodiversity of their environment for subsistence needs. In the last 30 years Indonesia has lost over 40% of its mangrove forests, affecting not only the environment and the species that rely on them but also the communities that depend on this ecosystem for survival.

Kenya

Since Kenya's independence in 1963 nearly 50% of the nations forests have been destroyed.  Kenya's five montane forests - called "water towers" because of their ability to store water during the rainy season and release it slowly during dry periods - provide 75% of the nation's fresh water supply.
