Cost & Expenses
Through thousands of years of natural selection, forest people have evolved to be smaller than people who do not live in the rainforest. They also sweat less because the forest's high humidity means that sweat cannot evaporate, making sweating a poor way to cool off. Forest people also drink less water because their food contains a lot of water.
Forest people have accumulated a great wealth of knowledge about the forest and have learned how to live in the forest without damaging it. They know how to use thousands of edible, medicinal, and poisonous plants and how to grow crops in the forest's poor soil. They also know how to hunt and fish without driving the animals to extinction.
How people adapt in a tropical rainforest..
Environmental Issues
Illegal logging, land change use, the move to biofuel production and even climate change mitigation efforts, such as the Kyoto Clean Mechanism Development, all pose a threat to the rainforest biome.
The largest unbroken stretch of rainforest is found in the Amazon river basin of South America. Over half of this forest lies in Brazil, which holds about one-third of the world's remaining tropical rainforests. Another 20% of the world's remaining rainforest exists in Indonesia and Congo Basin, while the balance of the world's rainforests are scattered around the globe in tropical regions.
4. The Amazon Rainforest
Visiting the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve, a 250,000-acre rainforest in Ecuador, means trekking around 13 lagoons, spotting 60 kinds of orchids, and seeing anacondas wrapped around thick tree branches. Take a canoe trip down the river in the heart of the forest, and you'll see pink dolphins swimming alongside your boat.
1. The Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve
If you visit the Monteverde Cloud Forest in Costa Rica, for example, a guide can help search for the emerald-green Quetzal, a rare bird that often hides among the towering strangler fig trees there. The Quetzal is one of 400 kinds of birds in this rainforest, which is located 7,500 feet above sea level and has cooler temperatures than traditional rainforests due to its high altitude. Other wildlife here includes 100 species of mammals, including jaguars and howler monkeys. In addition to hiking the 17 miles of trails here, visitors can take ATV tours, walk on bridges suspended between trees, ride down zip lines and even tour a coffee plantation inside the forest.
2. The Monteverde Cloud Forest
If you want to experience a piece of history during your rainforest vacation, head to the 460-square-mile Khao Sok National Park in Thailand. It is 160 million years old and said to be the oldest rainforest on Earth.
