Rain Shelter

Working in the rainforest comes with many challenges, including unexpected downpours! Design a model rain shelter to keep the conservation team and their equipment dry.


Celebrating and Saving Wildlife and Wild Places:

The Amazon rainforest is one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, meaning there are many species of plants and animals there. It is very important to learn about and protect the complex rainforest ecosystem.


 Take Action:

Scientists need information about the frogs and toads that live in our neighborhoods, too. You can be a citizen scientist by participating in the FrogWatch USA program. Visit for more information!
