OVERVIEW: The rainforest is a cornucopia of resources. It supplies us with a plethora of day to day items that we take for granted - things including wood, medicine and food - but at what price?
This hands-on workshop delves into life in the rainforest and looks at how we’re depleting these resources. Can we reverse this man-made effect through recycling and sustainability?
