The rainforests are often referred to as "Earth's Lungs" because of the importance they play in our global ecosystem. However the trees and animal life that call the rainforests home are in serious danger. Check out the infographic

Our zoo is about to open a HUGE exhibit dedicated to Rain Forests of the Americas! We want to make a big point with children and their parents!

It's almost too late.....

One of my favourite movies is 'Medicine Man' starring Sean Connery. In it, he is a biologist and an medical doctor doing research in the Amazon rainforest to find a cure for cancer. And he does succeed sort of. But my point is that there are such treasures in the rainforest that we do not know about and never will if we destroy them. That on top of the great service they do for the planet. Forests are the lungs of our planet.

Interesting facts but we do not want to lose any more of our rainforests Wake up all the mining and large corporations and governments and stop thinking about money first
