Sky and WWF, in partnership with the Forestry Commission, are launching a series of Discovery Trails to inspire you to get out into your local forest and learn why they and the Amazon rainforest are so special. From Dalby Forest to the far off tropical rainforests like the Amazon, they are a great place to relax, exercise or spend time with the family. They are also hugely important for both people and the planet. Take part in the Discovery Trail at Dalby Forest and you (and your family) can listen to amazing wildlife sounds or simply learn and compare what products come from the rainforest. Along the trail you will also be able to take a photo in an Amazon rainforest setting and have the opportunity to test your knowledge on forests in England and of course the Amazon.
