The location of the tropical rainforests in the world are located on the equator. The location of the largest rainforests are in Central America, the Amazon, Africa, South-East Asia, and Australia.
Central America- This entire area was once covered in rainforest before much of it was cut down for grazing and farming. It is host to many tropical birds and exotic creatures.
The Amazon- The Amazon Jungle is a large rainforest. In fact, it is the world’s largest tropical rainforest. This jungle of rainforest covers all of the Amazon floor and includes the Amazon River, the world’s second longest river. This amazing rainforest is home to 1/5 of the world’s plants and birds and 1/10 of the world’s mammals.
Africa- Much of Central Africa and the island of Madagascar is draped in tropical rainforest. These areas contain rainforests, swamps, and flooded forests. This is the second largest tropical rainforests in the world, and the rainforests is home to many unique plant and animal species that can be found nowhere else.
South-East Asia- Because of the hot and humid climate that is constant in areas from India to Borneo, the tropical rainforests here flourish. The monsoon season accompanied by constant flooding allows for growing thick rainforests. A large variety of life, unlike any other places on Earth, live here.
Australia- Millions of years ago, Australia, New Zealand, and New Guinea were all part of one land mass. This is why rainforests are present in all locations. The amazing undergrowth in these rainforests is compact and lush. There are wet winds that blow into the canopy from the Pacific Ocean.
