The issue I choose in my project was deforestation. Deforestation occurs in the forests all over the world. Some loggers act illegally, and even the ones who are legal are still affecting climate change all over the world. Deforestation also takes away from animal’s natural habitats. For example, the Jaguar is now classified as “near threatened” for reasons directly related to deforestation.

My hexagon shows a tree being cut down due to the issue. The ground around it is yellow to show decay and death in a once wonderful forest. The tree has the words “Us” and “Earth” splitting apart right where the tree is being cut, and in the background there is a tree that has already been split in half.

I liked how you explained how deforestation is not only affecting us, but the animals too.
