Timber!!!

Due to commercial interests by a handful of people, Dominican Republic is now facing the big problem of deforestation. This country loses a big part of its forest areas because of industrialization and modernization. Another factor for this problem is loggers continue to cut down timber for commercial purposes. In addition to this problem, farmers also continues to burn down forest lands to convert them top farmlands. As a result of this, a large number of animal species is said to be endangered or extinct because of the lost of their natural habitats.
