In jungles, everywhere is special.
Jungles contain a bewildering diversity of life, all intricately linked. Life here has evolved to fit every niche, but due to deforestation they're disappearing faster than anywhere on earth. Below you'll find a series of engaging resources and activities to help you connect with nature and learn more about our planet's jungle habitats; from creative 'make-it' events, to educational worksheets and a live webinar with a WWF expert. If you’re a teacher, download our Educator Guide for further curriculum linked activities for Key 2 and 3. You might also want to download our new activity pack 'Amazing Amazon.

Join Matt for a special look at these fascinating insects and some tips on how to find them, record them, and study their incredible activities.
Trillion trees art challenge
Create an artwork inspired by the rainforest.

Join Lizzie to see her artwork, a pop up paper cut out, and to learn about the Trillion Trees Project and what WWF is doing to protect tropical rainforests.
