There are many plant and animal species living in tropical rain forests that have yet to be discovered. However, cattle ranching and development projects are destroying rain forests at such an alarming rate that they could be gone in fifty years. Who owns the rain forests? Do they belong to indigenous peoples, the governments of rain forest countries, or everyone on the planet since their impact is worldwide? Author Linda Johnson explores this question and also what the future holds for this rapidly diminishing resource.
