Live: Amazon's Seasons
It’s time for another First Friday Facebook Live.
As we head into cooler fall weather, Taylor and Nick visited the flooded Amazon rainforest exhibit on Level 3 to discuss the seasons of that area.
Unlike temperate climates, which have four distinct season (winter, spring, summer and fall), the Amazon rainforest has two primary seasons, wet and dry. Learn about the source of the rain in the rainforest, the area’s flora and fauna, and some of the adaptations of both. Also learn about Project Piaba and how it helps people in the region and their sustainable home aquarium fish trade.
