  1. This “behind the scenes…” video is excellent! Thank you for this opportunity to learn and appreciate even more the effort, consideration, and planning that goes into an amazing exhibit like this! Am a CAS volunteer, and this has helped illuminate more of the rainforest experience for me!

  2. Why do I have to give info to yet another site in order to view “Behind the scenes in the rainforest” on the CAS site? I’m lready a member of that so why more things to remember, e.g. passwords. It’s getting to be too much, really. It’s bad enough on the rest of the blog that it’s hard to find your way back to the main part when you click on a particular item. Up to date & technology are getting in the way of finding information.

  3. Hi Mary, I am not sure why you are being asked for any information/passwords and I am sorry it is giving you trouble. I just tried it myself and the video plays on the page when you click the “play” symbol, no questions asked. Also, if you click the link below the video to watch it in a new window, it opens up and automatically starts playing. I will pass the issue to our webmaster.
