Rainforests of Panama

Tropical rainforests are warm, 24-27°C (75-80°F) year round, because they are located near the equator. Rainforests live up to their name—they receive at least 2,000 mm (80 inches) of rain every year.


While they cover less than seven percent of the Earth’s surface, rainforests contain about half of the plant and animal species on the planet.

DID YOU KNOW?
The rainforests of Panama, in particular, are some of the world’s most biologically diverse areas. Chagres National Park, situated east of Gatun Lake and the northern half of Panama Canal, has 1,185 species of plants, 130 of which are unique to that area.

Panama’s rainforests are home to many mammals that migrated from both North and South America. Among these species are jaguars, tapirs, deer, sloths, anteaters, and armadillos. There are also 650 species of birds and 93 amphibian species in the Panama Canal watershed. more>
