What is life like in the Amazon Rainforest? Explore animals that live there and learn about people that call it their ‘home’.

Immerse yourself in the rainforest habitat, learn about life in the rainforest and the people and animals that live there. Working as a whole class and in small groups, students will discover the importance of rainforests, the threats to their existence and consider the consequences locally and globally. There will be the opportunity to see some of our collection of Wai Wai objects up close.
