Save the Rain Forests eQuotes
Rain forests are living ecosystems within themselves. As a matter of fact, the Encyclopedia Britannica calls them the earth’s oldest ecosystems. Rain forests are large, hot, and humid stretches of land covered by tall trees. The temperature and humidity are due to their location being near the equator. Rain Forests get their name from the fact that it rains nearly year-round. These lush tropical forests have flourishing animal life due to the heat and humidity.
