People across the UK have the chance to get up close and personal with the Amazon rainforest by visiting the Sky Rainforest Rescue Pod, which is about to embark on a UK tour.

WWF and Sky have created the Amazon pod to raise awareness about deforestation in the Amazon and encourage people to support Sky Rainforest Rescue, a project that aims to save one billion trees in the Brazilian state of Acre.

Visitors will be able to step into the magic of the Amazon, as they experience the sights and sounds and take a 3D tour through the rainforest, all for free.

The pod is at the Hay Festival in Wales from 28 May to 1 June, then will travel around the UK. Make sure you keep an eye on the Sky Rainforest Rescue website to find out when it’s coming to a location near you!
