  • Mongabay was born out of my love for rainforests so for this Valentine's day,
  • I'm doing something a little different: posting a bunch of my favorite rainforest photos from the past twenty years.
  • There are no wildlife photos in this set -- the focus is solely on rainforests.

Mongabay was born out of my love for rainforests so for this Valentine’s day, I’m doing something a little different: posting a bunch of my favorite rainforest photos from the past twenty years. There are no wildlife photos in this set — the focus is solely on rainforests.

If you’d like to follow our reporting on rainforests, check out our rainforests feed or our country and region-specific feeds for places like the Amazon and the Congo. There are many more rainforest photos in our image section.

For more general information on rainforests, see our main rainforest site and our rainforest site for kids.

Happy Valentine’s Day from Mongabay!
