Explorer Classroom | Kevin Mclean

Kevin is an ecologist studying mammals that live in the canopy of the rainforest. He climbs into the treetops and uses motion-sensitive cameras to document species that we very rarely see from the ground. He has worked in some of the most biodiverse places on the planet, including Malaysia, Ecuador, and Panama. The canopy layer of the rainforest consists of the broad, irregular crowns of trees that form a tight, continuous canopy in some cases over 100 feet above the ground. The branches are often densely covered with other plants (epiphytes) and tied together with vines (lianas). The canopy is home to 90% of the organisms found in the rain forest; many seeking the brighter light in the treetops. There are countless new species waiting to be discovered in this largely unexplored ecosystem.
