Why Plantasia?

The City and County of Swansea take their Environmental responsibility very seriously and were inspirational and forward thinking when they decided to create a Rainforest in the middle of the City to highlight the need and importance of looking after and protecting the World we live in. Rainforests are so important as they are the lungs of the World and contain over half the world's species of plants and animals.

BUT, did you know every second an area the size of a football field is destroyed, that's 86,400 football fields per day, or over 31 million football fields of Rainforest each year!

So here at Plantasia we hope to show you how important it is to save our Rainforests!  So come in and walk around our Tropical Paradise, take time to learn about the plants and animals which call the beautiful Rainforests their home.
