They are fed the coffee beans and they are collected from the dung later after passing through the elephants digestive system.

The green algae that makes its home in the sloth’s fur helps it to blend in with the tops of the trees, the canopy, where it makes its home.This type of habitat is very different in comparison to many of the other habitats that you are used to being around. Through learning about the challenges faced by the rainforest’s ecosystem, you can educate others to support reforestation and conservation efforts. You’ve probably heard of some of them: jaguars, toucans, parrots, gorillas, and tarantulas all make their home in tropical rainforests. As such, the IUCN has classified jaguars as near-threatened, which makes them considerably closer to extinction than other species. Because of this, scientists believe that protecting rainforests from deforestation could help to reduce global warming.

The rainforest is so thick with plants and greenery that it can take up to 10 minutes for a drop of water to travel from the top layer of a tree to the forest floor! Other species, such as the fig wasp, have evolved a symbiotic relationship with their host plant, which provides them with a safe place to lay their eggs and food for their larvae.

Although rainforests cover less than 3 percent of the planet, these ecological powerhouses are critical to nearly every aspect of the planet’s health—including our very ability to breathe.

The idiot fruit tree is known by its scientific name Idiospermum australiense or the Green Dinosaur due to its lineage. Tropical rainforests are found close to the equator where it is much warmer, whereas temperate rainforests are found along coasts, where it is much cooler. Due to the trees' thick canopies (top branches and tree leaves), many parts of the forest have an almost black forest floor, as only 1% of sunlight can actually make it through. The report also records reductions of glaciers and land-cover changes triggered by expanding human activities such as agriculture, forestry, aquaculture and mining that have affected the country from the coast to the Andes.
