Why is it important to preserve biodiversity in tropical rainforests?

Once the ecosystem has been destroyed, extinct species can't be replaced. There are lots of medicines from the plants, trees and animals in the rainforest (at least 1/3) and its unknown how many more chemicals may still be discovered. All species have the right to exist and maintaining the biodiversity is part of the sustainable way forward.
