Deforestation

Adu Kumi Ernest, age 17

Ghana, West Africa



This painting shows how some areas are polluted.  The forest has been destroyed by bush fire.  The cutting down of trees causes deforestation while the river has been polluted by toxic waste from factories and rubbish from our homes.


Editors Note: The rivers of Ghana have been severely damaged by the fact that the people of Ghana use wood for their daily cooking . Deforestation is rampant, even the Cambridge School that hosted our Global Rivers event had not 50″ ‘ from the front door had a dry riverbed that had once been a flowing river the principle told us that because the trees had been removed the river had dried up. Ernest portrays a healthy river lined with trees and the encroaching disease of deforestation.
