The Green Planet was conceptualized to bring together nature and the science of nature, which when combined invite, amaze and inspire appreciation of our natural world.
The delicate layers of the forest have been recreated with the different plants and animals that inhabit each, providing a glimpse behind the veil of greenery.
Learn how to nurture and protect the many beautiful, interesting and unique species that can be found within the forests of the world through this truly enlightening experience.
The Green Planet is open to the curious and adventurous, the young and old, to experience the unique beauty of another world.
The canopy forms the roof of the rainforest, absorbing the majority of the sunlight and diffusing the rainfall. It stands at a staggering height of approximately 30-45 metres above the ground.
This is the middle layer of the rainforest, where trees commonly have large leaves in order to absorb any sunlight filtered down through the canopy. Here, there is more open space than above and more sunlight than the forest floor below.
The three words that best describe the forest floor of the rainforest – Humid. Quiet. Dark. Unlike the other more bright and lively layers, barely any sunlight reaches the floor.
As much life as there is aboveground, a lot of activity happens below. Over 3m of rain falls each year, flooding rivers and streams that provide the perfect living conditions for all kinds of animals.
The Green Plannet offers Bio-dome access with one programme topic and each programme is aligned with the learning objectives of the school curriculum established by the Ministry of Education.
The programmes introduce students to a variety of scientific and environmental topics related to the ecosystem of a tropical forest.
The programmes are taught interactively in the engaging environment of a tropical forest with over 3,000 species (plants and animals).
