Learn to climb a acai palm

The Amazon rainforest is home to a diverse range of plants and animals, including the acai palm tree. This tree is prized for its nutritious fruit, which is used to make a variety of products, including juice, smoothies, ice cream and bowls. The Caboclos, the people who live along the Amazon, are experts at climbing acai palm trees. They use a simple technique that involves a rope or liana tied around their feet. This allows them to quickly and safely ascend the tree to harvest the fruit.
