Rainforest: The Great Illuminator

Rainforests are the illuminating green wonderlands of Earth, famously known for hosting an array of animals, insects and a wide variety of flora.

Located around the equator, rainforests are so good at conducting light, that only a faint outline appears when viewed from outer space, almost like Earth’s window to the galaxy. These rainforests receive heavy rainfall that generously quenches the thirst of the forest and makes it thrive with life.

Rainforests are so dense that even GPS navigation cannot penetrate the depths of the forest, making it an ideal place to get lost or find a place to hide from responsibilities.

Rainforests are the perfect place to meet a chameleon who’s always trying out different colours on its skin, a toucan who’s always bragging about its enormous beak or a sloth who’s considered the epitome of laziness.

Exploring rainforests is said to be one of the most thrilling experiences a person can have, especially when encountering deadly creatures, such as anacondas, tarantulas, and piranhas. A visit to the rainforest is an experience that is not for the faint-hearted.

Above all, rainforests are critical to maintaining the balance of our planet’s climate, as they absorb carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. It’s the perfect excuse to breathe in as much fresh air as you can when you’re exploring one.

The next time you’re planning your vacation, make sure to put a visit to the rainforest on your itinerary, and live the adventure of a lifetime. Who knows, you might end up discovering a new species or a cure for a disease, just like in the movies.
