Take a Trip to a Rainforest!
There are an astonishing amount of places to be seen around the planet, but now is not the best time to travel. While traveling may not be in your immediate plans, you can still take a trip with us virtually (and to places you may have never planned on traveling to)! Take in the beauty of rainforests and witness various animals that you may not have had a chance to see otherwise.
Under The Canopy - Amazon Rainforest
Take an interactive tour of the Amazon Rainforest thanks to the efforts of Conservation International. Not only does it give you a close glimpse of the rainforest, you can also rotate the video 360 degrees so you can see more! Make sure you take advantage of the ability to move the view as you'll see things such as a sloth, snake, birds, and more! While it is a beautiful sight to see, Conservation International is asking for your help in saving these fascinating creatures and lands. See more at their website.
Our Planet - Jungle Episode
While there are many virtual trips that you can take, rarely do they have the detail and filmwork that the Our Planet series has. Not only will you be introduced to breathtaking scenes, you will witness animals you've never seen before in their natural habitat. Come for the beauty of the jungle and leave with knowledge that you didn't have before!

For other episodes, check them out on Youtube or on Netflix.
Virtual Walk Through a Tropical Forest
Lastly is a peaceful trip to a tropical forest in Hawaii. Shot in high resolution, there's a ton of detail and you can see the paradise that Maui has to offer. Being an hour long, this virtual trip allows you to unwind to the beauty and sounds of nature.
