    Not many piple have saved a rainforrest from the bulldozers and chainsaws, but Dr Paul Cox has. When a logging company offered the village of Falealupo, on Savaii Island, $US 55000, to cut down their rainforest, the villagers were tempted because they needed the moneys to bild a new primary school. But, when Cox, an American botanist, heared about it, he raised $US 55000, with the help of some American businessmen. They offerd the money to the village if they promised not to cut down the forest for 50 years. The village council of chiefs was amased . They couldn ' t bilive that anyone would pay them so much money to preserve the 30000-acre, rainforest. It was an offer the village chieves couldn ' t refuse. They received money for the new school and they keeped their forest. For once, a logging company lost out, and a small tropical forest was saved.
