Learn About Rainforests


You’re never too young to be a hero for the rainforest! The smallest efforts count, and the smallest people can make a huge difference. The most important tool you have is your energy – let it out with your voice and your actions!

To put your energy to good use, first you must fill your mind with information. Then you can use your voice to share what you’ve learned – educating others about what’s going on in the rainforest and why we should all care. You can also use your actions to reduce your impact on our planet – your personal choices at home have a direct impact on the rainforest.

Use the links below to learn about the rainforest and how you can help protect it!

I help clean fish in the morning. Well, if there are fish. I also get water, and then wash the plates. There is a lot of work in the morning, especially if my baby brother is sick, because then my mom has to help him and I help with the water, cutting the fish, and cleaning. I go to school at 8, and then finish at 12.

In the afternoon we usually go play in the river or on the beach. Sometimes we play volleyball, but that is more for the older girls. I am not good at volleyball.

At night we get more fish and go find yucca. I usually go to bed after dark, but I don’t know what time. Sometimes we travel to my grandmother’s village, which is about ½ day away on the river. We travel there by boat.
