Top rain forests on the planet and canvas with natural parks images

Posted On Jan 2 2020

Of all tropical rainforests, 57% are found in Latin America with a third in Brazil. Other major tropical rainforests are located in southeast Asia and the Pacific islands (25%) and west Africa (18%). Temperate rainforests account for around 25% of the world’s forests. They are moist forests that grow on mountain ranges, usually along western coasts where westerly winds bring high precipitation. Temperate rainforests spread much further north and south than their tropical counterparts. They still receive upwards of 2,000mm of year-round rainfall, but experience drier summers. They have less biodiversity than tropical rainforests.

Harapan is a beautiful tropical stretch in the province of Jambi, Sumatra, Indonesia. It’s one of the biodiversity hot-spots of the world. It’s also home to many of the world’s threatened wildlife species: the Sumatran Tiger, Orangutan, Asian Elephant, Malayan Sun Bear, and Clouded Leopard. Sweetly and understandably, its nickname is “The Forest of Hope.” It’s heaven for wildlife adventurers; the sights will blow you away as a travel lover! Like many other tropical greens, unfortunately, Harapan experiences the same mistreatment from logging, mining, and other harmful commercial acts. We’re finally starting to see a turn-around for Harapan, with projects and conservation efforts building it back to its health!

Sundarbans Researve Forest: The Sundarbans Researve Forest is within the Bangladesh area and covers 40 percent of India. The entire land area covered by the forest is 10,000 km2. It is one of the natural mysteries of the word because of its location in the Padma, Brahmaputra, and Meghna river basins. Mangrove trees dominate the forest and it also serves as a habitat to the Bengal tiger. Monteverade Forest: Located in Costa Rica, the forest is named after Monteverade and covers an area of more than 10,500 hectares. Tropical green vegetation covers most of the area with nearly 2,500 plant species, 120 amphibian and reptilian species, thousands of insects, 400 varieties of birds, and 100 different mammals. The forest also has natural rivers, medicinal herbs, streams, and waterfalls and because of these natural resources it’s always referred to as “the virgin forest.”

While it would seem that the wet environment would result in a prolific mosquito population, the water in El Yunque is constantly running down the mountain and rapidly, and it rains about four times a day preventing any standing water, so there are no mosquitoes in the rainforest. You can wear insect repellent if you choose, but if so DO NOT go into any water sources. The chemicals in bug spray are hazardous to the fragile ecosystem. Perhaps just cover with long pants and long-sleeved shirts instead of using repellent. See additional information at El Yunque rain forest exploration blog. From the start I took photos of the forest. As technology advanced I saw in 2013 an opportunity to document, in a scientific way, every detail of this forest. Now over 10K images later, I believe I am only starting. Then Hurricane Maria came totally unexpected, and decimated the forest canopy. A new world arose here.
