Did You Know That...

A polar bear has a very good nose. It can smell a seal, the polar bear's favourite meal, from more than 37 miles away.

In 1522, Spanish explorers brought tomatoes home from their trips to the New World. Unfortunately for rich folks, they thought the tomatoes were posonous; so, only the poor peasants ate them and received the health benefits of them.

The gradual demise of the world's tropical rainforests is devastating. More than half of the world's estimated 10 million species of plants, animals and insects live there. Each day, 137 plant, animal and insect species are lost due to deforestation - never to be seen again.
