Pacific North West Rain Forest
Today, one of our members from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Felix Mchinga, posted pictures about the Itombwe Natural Reserve in DRC where he works to preserve Bio diversity.
Here is his post with beautiful pictures: http://worldpulse.com/node/70389
In return I wanted to post some pictures of the forest from the Pacific North West of the U.S for him and anybody else to see.
Here is some info about the Pacific Rain Forest:
"The Pacific temperate rain forests ecoregion of North America is the largest temperate rain forest ecoregion on the planet as defined by the World Wildlife Fund (other definitions exist). The Pacific temperate rain forests lie along the western side of the Pacific Coast Ranges along the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America from the Prince William Sound in Alaska through the British Columbia Coast to Northern California, and are part of the Nearctic ecozone, as also defined by the World Wildlife Fund. The Pacific temperate rain forests are characterized by a high amount of rainfall, in some areas more than 300 cm (120 inches) per year and moderate temperatures in both the summer and winter months (between 10-24°C)."
