La Digue 47We have almost reached our fundraising target for our new island rainforest exhibition but still need to raise a little extra to ensure we can go ahead with opening this summer. Please support us so we can bring the magic of the rainforest to thousands more school children and families.

Or to have your donation doubled by the Greenham Common Trust search for ‘rainforest’ here.

The exhibition will focus on small island nation rainforests because of their unique character and particular vulnerability – they are on the front line of the impacts of climate change through rising sea levels.

Visitors will get a sense of what it’s like to be in a real island rainforest.  There will be mangroves, a picture wall showing the coastline, native animals, fish and insects, including hundreds of butterflies flying around freely.Phillippine water monitor

Our first animal for the new exhibition – a Philippine water monitor lizard – has arrived safely on site and is settling in well ready to go on display in the summer.

To help make our plans a reality please make a donation here (please search for ‘rainforest’ to find us). All donation will be doubled by the Greenham Common Trust. Or text RAIN10 followed by £1, £5 or £10 to 70070. Thank you.
