Jungles cover six percent of the Earth’s surface. While most people associate jungles with the equatorial rain forests of the Congo in Africa, the Amazon basin in Brazil and the uncultivated lands of Southeast Asia, there is technically a jungle in the United States. The western coast of Canada (around Vancouver) and southern Alaska is classified as a jungle area.
Hawaii, while not a part of the contiguous U.S, has tropical rain forests on all six of it’s major islands. The rain forests or jungles are typically located in the western interior or windward side of the islands. The geographical location of the jungles on each of the islands is due to isolated micro-climates caused by significant rain. Certain parts of Kauai receive more than 400 inches of rain annually, creating lush rain forests.
