The tropical rainforests of the world are home to thousands of species of plants and animals -- including many that remain undiscovered by scientists. This video segment from the Race to Save the Planet teaching module "Saving the Diversity of Life" explores both the ecological importance and fragility of the rainforest biome and its organisms.
This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
