This special page is for my dear friend Linda Hughes and her promotional
campaign for TreeBanking and saving our rain forests. I feel that one approach to saving the rain forest
starts with inspiring an interest in the next generation -- our children.
Hopefully, once their curiosity is piqued, their interest will lead to an awareness
of, more education on, and an appreciation for, our rain forests. Here are some
rain forest-related games FREE to play on the internet, mostly for very young children.

The British Council has a considerable games-for-kids section. If you are looking for something on
a particular theme (such as the rain forest, animals, or the environment, to
name a few), the Play and Learn area is your best bet. The games here are aimed more directly at knowing and
quizzing knowledge than exciting interactivity, however.
Zoo Vet is the great game that introduces players to life at the zoo and gives them the
ability to care for a diverse group of animals while interacting with
entertaining characters. Travel around the zoo, performing check-ups on cuddly otters,
dangerous lions, wobbly penguins, and hyper zebras. The more successful and
knowledgeable you are, the more awards and praise you'll earn from team members.

animals, possibly as a veterinarian. The games feature amazing animal facts and
