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.
