Habitat

The UK has its own unique rainforest ecosystems, known as temperate rainforest.

These grow on the west coast of the UK along the gulf stream, which provides mild damp conditions ideal for rainforest biodiversity to flourish.

Once abundant, there are now only 1% of these special spaces left and they are classified as one ( if not the most ) endangered forest ecosystem in the world.

The conditions allow for unique species of lichen, algae, moss, and ferns to establish and flourish.

“We are thrilled Kernow Learning (Cornwall) has embraced this progressive opportunity to bring 10 temperate rainforests into 10 local schools and for the children to be involved in such a hands-on way. ”
