Tropical Rainforests are a precious natural resource. Whilst they only account for approximately 6% of the Earth’s total surface, they are home to an amazing diversity of fauna and flora, some of which is not found anywhere else. They Provide homes to more than 50% of the Earth’s species and are a living museum of what the earth’s vegetation used to look like, 50-100 million years ago.

Tropical rainforests purify our water and clean our air, also representing a biological treasure chest of chemicals and genes that could provide important drugs and industrial compounds for future generations.

The Skyrail Rainforest Foundation continues to support tropical rainforest research and education projects. So, why not become a member or make a tax free donation today and help us conserve and protect tropical rainforests worldwide?
