International Day of the Tropics!


Recommended for Middle Grades

The International Day of the Tropics is a celebration of the amazing variety of life in the tropics. The day aims on bringing attention to the unique problems and opportunities that tropical countries face.

It gives people the chance to look at the progress that has been made in the tropics, talk about their experiences and skills in the tropics, and recognise the region’s wealth and potential.
