The map below shows the location of the world's tropical rainforests. Rainforests cover only a small part of the earth's surface - about 6%, yet they are home to over half the species of plants and animals in the world . Rainforests can be found in over 85 countries around the world!
The rainforest is home to more than half of the world's animals. All types of creatures are represented, from tiny insects to large mammals.
Many of the animals found in the rainforest are becoming endangered because their homes (trees) are being cut down! Click here to view a movie about life in the rainforest Quit Click on the next slide to See more pictures
