Dear Mr Johnson
I hope you are feeling better after Covid 19.
I am writing to you because of deforestation and I hope you are aware of the impact this is having on the Amazon Rainforest and the world. Nature and habitats of species are being destroyed. We need to look after these things so that we can provide a clean healthy planet Earth for future generations. I look forward to hearing about your plans to help contribute towards this.
