Tropical Rain Forest

     Rain forests are found near the equator in areas where rain falls almost everyday. Rainforest trees tend to be very tall, forming a dense canopy about 50 meters high. Large animals live on the forest floor, and spiders and insects inhabit all levels. Monkeys, flying squirrels, bats and sloth live high in the canopy.



What has gone wrong, probably, is that we have failed to see ourselves as a part of a large and indivisible whole. For too long we have based our lives on a primitive feeling that our “God-given” role was to have “dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that move upon the earth.

~Rolf Edberg
