    Rainforest Habitat. A beam of sunlight makes its way through the leaves and lights up the brightly colored wings of a macaw. An enormous butterfly flits from plant to plant. Monkeys shout and chatter as they swing from tree to tree looking for breakfast. The rainforest is waking up.   Some of the worst hit areas are inside the Amazon rainforest, where researchers say the spread of COVID is exacerbating another crisis: destruction of the Amazon rainforest.

    At the site in the Amazon, researchers have constructed a ring of towers to increase the amount of CO2 in the rainforest canopy. The area, about 30 meters in diameter, can be closely observed by researchers. Norby said that he enjoyed exploring the plant life and wildlife of the rainforest. Tropical rainforests are the most biologically diverse terrestrial ecosystems in the world. The Amazon rainforest is the world’s largest tropical rainforest. It is home to aro plant species, nearly 1, bird species, 3, types of fish, species of mammals, and million different insects.

      Learn about rainforests and rainforest animals with these awesome Rainforest Worksheets! Two sets are available: What is a Rainforest? and Rainforests of the World. *** Note: Details of our downloadable workbooks can now be found here: Rainforest Workbooks *** Rainforest workseets for kids – available for instant download.
