The Sumatran rainforest is a deeply tragic story of deforestation. The sixth largest island in the world was once covered with thick jungle from coast to coast. Now, only pockets of rainforest remain, largely within the UNESCO protected Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra. Illegal logging and palm oil production is chiefly to blame. With almost 50% of Sumatra’s tropical rainforest lost in the last 35 years, the likelihood is that outside these protected areas all remaining rainforest in Sumatra will disappear within 20 years. Tigers, rhinos, orangutans and elephants are all severely at risk. The Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra is spread across the national parks of Gunung Leuser, Kerinci Seblat and Bukit Barisan. Between them, they hold the island’s last hope for the long-term conservation of its varied plant life and myriad endangered species.
The North Western Ghats Rainforest of India runs parallel to the Arabian Sea and represents another one of the top-ten biodiversity hot-spots. It’s also a World Heritage Site! With national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, and forest reserves, this tropical land has thousands of animal species. The Western Ghats, themselves, belong to a mountain chain that’s older than the Himalayan mountains! The site’s high montane forest ecosystems actually signify some of the best examples of the Indian monsoon system on Earth. India’s North Western Ghats is just as important as other tropical forests, as they track weather patterns across lands. If you’re looking to see an extraordinary landscape with endless adventure possibilities, travel to India to view one of the world’s tropical creations!

El Yunque National Forest is a tropical rainforest in northeastern Puerto Rico. From El Portal Visitor Center, a walkway winds through the surrounding treetops. Trails run to La Mina waterfall and Mount Britton, then up to the high-altitude dwarf forest. In the south are ancient petroglyphs, made by the area’s indigenous Taíno people. The forest comes alive with the nightly calls of coquí tree frogs. See additional information on https://www.recordandoyunque.store/blogs/news. From the start I took photos of the forest. As technology advanced I saw in 2013 an opportunity to document, in a scientific way, every detail of this forest. Now over 10K images later, I believe I am only starting. Then Hurricane Maria came totally unexpected, and decimated the forest canopy. A new world arose here.
