Why the smell of the rainforest is important.

By Lucy Radford | Engagement Manager

If you’ve visited a rainforest, you’ll know they are amazing places. The sights, sounds and smells are vibrant and fascinating. Did you know, though, that the smell of a rainforest is an important component of making rainfall? Yes, you read that correctly!

Rainforests are vital in producing rain because of their role in evapotranspiration, where water moves from the Earth’s surface into the atmosphere. Rain is a product of condensation, but to produce each drop of rain, water molecules need something to condense on. These surfaces can include pollen, salts and ice crystals – and, in the rainforest, volatile organic scent compounds released by leaves. Is there anything rainforests can’t do if we look after them

Thank you for continuing to support us in replanting rainforest and keeping the Earth in balance.
