Rainforest celebrates 10 years

The Living Rainforest is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, coinciding with its busiest Easter weekend ever. Staff are hoping for a record year, with loads more events and new arrivals, such as the red tailed boa constrictor. Originally found in the rainforests of Colombia, this captive-bred, brilliantly patterned snake joins the varied animal collection at The Living Rainforest. The second largest snake in South America, when fully grown it can reach up to 13 feet in length!

Over the Easter weekend, more than 250 people took part in the Tropical Bird Egg Hunt, where they sought out nine hidden eggs in the Rainforest, and tried to guess what was inside each of them. The Leaf Printing workshop on Wednesday 23rd April is expected to draw a large number of budding artists—the week before, well over a hundred prints were made. Also coming up is the Animal Talk on Thursday 24th, and the 3D Art Workshop on Friday 25th which will be exploring (and creating) cultural decoration. All activities are free with admission.

With the public’s support, The Living Rainforest hopes to continue its success in the future.
