About Us

The tropical rainforest has to be the most enchantingly beautiful, mysterious, transcendental and biodiverse place on our earth.

Founder and director Mike Kohlrieser felt as though each and every person should have an opportunity to experience this incredible place. Realizing that this is not possible, Mike set out to do the next best thing. “Let’s bring the rainforest to them.”

Twenty-five years later, Mike has shared monkeys and birds, snakes and lemurs, alligators and sloths with literally hundreds of thousands of students and their families across the United States. Audiences love seeing these magnificent animals.

With this educational program, Mike is bringing to students the reality of what we stand to lose if we do not take care of this precious gift we call Earth.
