Summary:This website presents a virtual tour of a tropical rainforest in Nicaragua and the biodiversity within it
Description:When you get to the site, just follow the instructions to click your way through the slide show and read simple text to learn about:

*The people who live in the rainforest
*Trees with roots that grow above the ground, unusual flowers, fascinating seeds
*Toucans, Howler Monkeys, Trap-jaw Ants, Poison Dart Frogs, Bats, Peanut-head Bugs, and Crocodiles

The last side invites you to learn how purchasing wood products from rainforests can lead to either deforestation or preservation. You'll learn how to tell the difference.

A new page opens with a picture of the same rainforest. Roll your cursor over the picture to see images that pop out of the picture. While many of the images are similar to the first virtual tour, the explanations are a little more in depth. Enjoy!
