Rainforest Ramble Tagua Nut Activity Kit (Discontinued)

ITEM #115

Did you know that half the world's animal and plant species reside in rainforests? The Amazon Rainforest alone contains 1600 bird species, 1,000,000 insect species and 30,000 different plants. One quarter of all medicine in the world comes from the rainforest. But the Amazon Rainforest is being destroyed at the rate of 1 acre per second! In our exclusive Rainforest Ramble project, kids explore and appreciate the wonderment of the rainforest as they learn to identify and use sustainable products that contribute to its preservation.

Ages 6 and up. This kit contains tree nuts. Please be aware of any participant who may be allergic.
