Acid rain reacts with metals and rocks such as limestone. Buildings and statues are damaged as a result. It also can damage the waxy layer on the leaves of trees which makes it more difficult for trees to absorb the minerals they need for healthy growth. They may die as a result.

Further, acid rain makes rivers and lakes too acidic for some aquatic life to survive.
