With the current rate destruction, the rainforests are expected to last only another 30-50 years. Nearly 40 species go extinct in rainforests everyday, in addition to that.
As of right now there are about 2.6 million square miles of rainforest from the original 6 million square miles. At the current rate of deforestation of 56,000 square miles per year, that would be only ~46.5 years. However, a lot of the rainforest is being protected and increasing awareness will slow the rate of deforestation. Even so, it may not be long until most of the rainforests in the world are gone.
