Rainforest By Mitchell Pampu and Victoria Hudson
Introduction A rainforest is an environment that has many rainfalls and lots of tall trees. There are rainforests all over the world but people mostly talk about tropical rainforests near the equator.
Where are the rainforests? Rainforests are all over in South America. They are in Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia and in the eastern Andean region of Ecuador and Peru. There are also some in Australia. The rainforests in Canada are on the western side of B.C.
Rainforests in Canada The Great Bear rain forest is on the north central coast of B.C. It is the largest intact temperate rain forest in the world. It is the only place to find the white Kermode bear. It is estimated to be home to 230 different bird species and 68 different mammals.
Facts about the rainforest Rainforests once covered 14% of the land surface. Nearly half the world’s plant and animals will be destroyed in the next 50 years. 2.47 acres may contain 750 types of trees and 1500 species of plants.
More Facts About The Rainforest Every second there is a foot ball field size of rainforest land being destroyed. More than 2000 different kinds of butterflies live in the rainforests. 1 out of 4 ingredients in our medicine are found in the rainforests.
Temperatures of Tropical Rainforests In tropical rainforests the temperature is about 35°C. And at night it only goes down about 2° or 3°C. In tropical rainforests the temperature stays pretty much the same all year.
Rainfall in the Rainforest Rain is common in a tropical rainforest. It can get up to 1000cm of rain in a year. Almost everyday begins with clear blue sky. By the afternoon the water has evaporated and it starts to rain heavily.
