Solomon Islands
The Solomon Islands contain a wide variety of rainforest types. Each island has something unique about its environment and its plant and animal life. The islands' lush forests contain 4,500 species of plants, 230 of which are different varieties of orchid, some not found anywhere else on Earth. Among the thick swaths of vegetation, over 170 species of birds can be found, some unique to the Solomon Islands as well. [more]
