Rainforests (issue 57/58)
Our summer double issue, 'Rainforests', is packed with wild discoveries! Watch out for fantastic, freaky frogs (some hopping, others flying)! Meet a giant anteater and a tiny (argumentative) ant! Discover seven animals with awesome rainforest adaptations: from the charming spider monkey to the awe-inspiring Goliath bird-eating spider. Slow down for the endangered pygmy three-toed sloth. And beware of the 'god of the night', the mighty jaguar!
The Sumatran Jungle (issue 35)
The Eco Kids discover the Indonesian island of Sumatra, one of the planet’s most amazing places. It’s a land of exceptional natural beauty, with unspoiled tropical beaches – but it also suffers from deadly natural disasters! It has peaceful, sleepy lakes – but also boiling mud! It has one of the most diverse forests on Earth – but it’s also one of the most threatened!
The Island of New Guinea (issue 28)
The Eco Kids travel to the world's second largest island – New Guinea. Almost three-quarters of this tropical land is lush, dense rainforest – the third largest rainforest in the world (after the Amazon and the Congo).
Peru, the Headwaters of the Amazon (issue 37)
Have you heard about a legendary boiling river deep in the Amazon? If small mammals fall in, their muscles cook on their bones! Boil-ieve it or not, it really does exist! Meet the Amazon's oddest bird... Some people call it a 'flying cow' or a 'dinosaur bird', but it's really a hoatzin! Trek to what is possibly the most famous (and mysterious) ruin in the world – the ancient city of Machu Picchu. It's positively packed with wildlife! No wonder it was voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
