  • Tarkine
    In Australia, the Tarkine Forest houses 3,000-year-old pine trees along with some Tasmanian devils. The temperate rainforest, the second-largest on earth, looks like a step back in time, more suitable for dinosaurs than adventurous travelers. © Houani | Dreamstime.com
  • Tongass
    Across the world in Alaska, Tongass National Forest offers 16.8 million acres of trees. The diverse wildlife includes Alaskan classics, from grizzly bears to salmon, and the forest boasts more organic matter per acre than any other. © Jerry Murphy | Dreamstime.com
  • Pando Aspen
    The Pando Aspen Grove in Utah is unique because it behaves like a single organism. Scientists guess the forest — all interconnected via one root system — is up to 1 million years old. © Clifton Smith | Dreamstime.com
  • Kakamega
    Kakamega Forest in Kenya was at one time the largest old-growth forest in the world, at a whopping 2 million years old. Unfortunately, this rainforest diminished greatly over the last few decades. Now it covers a mere 90 square miles. © Ivkuzmin | Dreamstime.com
  • Borneo
    Similarly, the Borneo Lowland Rainforest, approximately 140 million years old, is shrinking quickly due to climate change and deforestation. Residents include endangered orangutans and the world’s smallest squirrels. © Fabio Lamanna | Dreamstime.com
