Take a Walk in the Rainforest -- A Self-guided Tour
Tropical Rainforests are home to 50-90% of all the world's species of plants and animals. Rainforests provide us with oxygen, help maintain our climate and give us essential foods and

environment and to each other. Over time, this specialization has promoted extraordinary biodiversity in the rain forest.
