The tropical rainforests are the richest sources of life on earth, yet at the current rate of destruction, they could disappear. Half of the world’s plants and animals live in the rainforests. Learn about the four layers of the rainforest and the representative plant and animal species that reside in each layer.  Students participate in demonstrating how plants rid or retain water with various leaf shapes.

An example of hands-on artifacts in this program includes:

Iguana shed, Arrowana fish scale (used as a nail file), feathers from macaw parrots and African Gray parrot, vanilla bean, sugar cane and assorted rainforest food products. Confiscated items from the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service include an Asian Leopard cat pelt, Hippopotamus tusk, Blue Morpho butterfly, Asian rainforest insect mounts, elephant ivory necklace and tail hair bracelet, tiger bone plaster medicinal package, rhinoceros horn and bear gall bladder pill box and leopard bone tea balls medicinal box.
