The Living Rainforest

Keeping Warm This Winter

Help local residents & schools, and our much-loved rainforest animals & plants, stay warm this winter


We recently launched a crowd-funder campaign to provide much-needed support for struggling local schools and residents, and to help ensure a warm winter for our rare animals & plants.

This community appeal is a unique way for people to support the Living Rainforest while also helping local families and schools to visit while energy costs remain at unprecented levels.




4 ways people can help

  1. Family looking on Rainforest visitWinter passes for local residents – We would like to be able to provide a warm space this winter for local residents in need. A winter pass will allow a local resident who may be unable to heat their home access to the warmth of the Living Rainforest over the winter.


school visit

2. Financial support for school visits – We want to provide subsidised visits for those schools that would not otherwise be able to afford educational visits for their pupils. You can help cover the costs of a tour group of up to 17 school children. This will allow visits from schools whose budgets would otherwise not allow visits to go ahead this school year.





  1. Provide a warm home for Cinnamon the sloth & her fellow rainforest residents – Contribute to our heating costs for a month and receive an animal adoption pack and an annual family ticket to the Living Rainforest.


  1. Financial contributions from local Thames Valley businesses – The Living Rainforest would also be incredibly grateful to receive support from local businesses in the Thames Valley.
