VIII  Read the text and answer the questions.

We all know how important the rainforests are for the survival of our planet. These vast areas are needed to clean the atmosphere by producing oxygen and removing carbon dioxide. However, they are also important for another major reason. They are home to an enormous number of different species, but not all, and scientists believe that some plants from the rainforests may help us in the future to cure diseases.

However, great areas of rainforest are cut down every day to provide land for cattle and crops. It is very unusual to find rainforest that has not been touched by man, but in Guyana, a small country between Venezuela and Brazil, the rainforest is still unexplored. A group of scientists, wildlife experts and cameramen spent a month in the jungle there looking for rare plants and animals. We can see their experiences in a series of documentaries on BBC television. They found some amazing species. They saw the world’s biggest snake, the biggest spider, the biggest eagle and the biggest otter! They even managed to film the very rare jaguar. They climbed to the tops of really tall trees to film howler monkeys and went into dark caves to finds bats and crickets. A small team also climbed down the side of one of the world’s highest waterfalls to look at the animals and plants living beside it. They found an incredible number of unusual frogs. The scientists organized the expedition to try to persuade the world to protect the rainforests. Let’s hope they succeed.
