What We Want in the Rainforest

Rubber Tappers

About us Rubber Tappers and why we need the rain forest.

The rubber tappers came to the rain forest in the 1870's about 145 years ago! That's a Long time ago. Rubber tappers were the second group of people to come to the rain forest. ( the first were the Natives). The rubber tappers have jobs, but not like all the other people who came to the forest. Rubber tappers are only at the forest for one thing and that's to get the sap from the trees and turn it into some us-full things. Unlike the loggers we rubber tappers don't hurt a single thing that's in the forests. Rubber tappers have been in the rain forest for a long time and we will never leave.
