Each year, The Living Rainforest’s acclaimed education programme welcomes over 25,000 school children.
The Living Rainforest stands at the former site of one of Europe’s leading orchid nurseries. In 1993, it re-opened as a rainforest visitor centre. Today, with registered educational charity status, we welcome over 80,000 visitors a year.
The Trust for Sustainable Living, which runs The Living Rainforest, hosts a range of events on contemporary sustainability topics, including the annual International Schools Essay Competition & Debate and Schools Sustainability Challenge.
Explore the rainforest, and discover its wonders for yourself. Look out for free roaming lizards, birds and butterflies – you never know where they will appear next! Plus … monkeys, a crocodile, toucans, snakes and much more. See some of the world’s most popular food plants – bananas, coffee, cocoa, ginger, vanilla … – and plants that give us life-enhancing medicines, cosmetics and building materials.
