Amazonas comic John Erasmus (artist/writer) and Yousaf Ali Khan (editor) have been working hard to produce an entertaining and educational comic about the Amazon rainforest for children both in the UK and Brazil - in English and in Portuguese! You can download Issues 1-4 of the comics in English here . We think you will agree it is a beautiful comic with entertaining stories, educational materials and fun activities for children.

Rainforest Concern is represented by two speakers who visit school and community groups to promote the conservation of rainforest. 

Rainforest Roadshow

Bring the rainforest to your school with an animated talk from Dave Shaw and his rainforest roadshow of giant stick insects, tarantulas and tropical artifacts. Dave will share his intrepid travelling experiences with you and pass on the skills he has acquired from the Waorani and Quichua people of Ecuador - such as how to handle a giant blow dart! Visit www.rainforestroadshow.co.uk, email dave@rainforestroadshow.co.uk or phone 01982 560 244 for further information.



Phil offers inspiring programmes, activities and workshops specially designed for schools, all of which can be adapted to include related subject/topic areas that are being studied at the time of the visit. The styles of each activity may vary but the overall themes remain the same: promoting greater environmental/sustainable and cultural awareness and respect, and from that awareness, promoting active participation in developing a sustainable and culturally respectful society.

Phil tours the whole of the UK, and some locations, venues and schools have booked him every year since the launch of Plan-It Eco in 1997! Visit plan-iteco.com, phone 07798 802 087 or email info@plan-iteco.com for further information.


David is a biologist who has worked in and visited many schools in Scotland teaching children the importance of the rainforest, why they are being destroyed and about the animals and people who depend on the rainforests for survival. David provides the pupils with exciting comics and educational booklets. To organise a talk with David please call 01333 730 524 or email info@rainforestconcern.org.  These talks are entirely free, but a voluntary contribution would help us continue to provide talks and protect threatended habitats.
