Help with Rainforest School Reports

My, my my... there ARE a lot of you out there writing reports on the rainforest!! We know because we get so many emails from students looking for help, asking questions or just saying thanks for all the information on our website. We think this is absolutely wonderful! Our young people today are our future for tomorrow and you CAN play a vital role in saving our rainforests now and as our future leaders!

So get with it! Knowledge IS Power. Study hard and learn a lot!

We've organized this link page for you to find information on the Raintree website as well as other websites on specific subjects about the rainforest that are commonly written about. If you want to use any of Raintree's images or graphics to jazz up your report, please follow the instructions located here. Thanks for being a part of the solution and good luck on a great grade!
