Borneo rainforest – afternoon soundscape in the jungle

Maliau Basin Conservation Area

Habitat: Rainforest
Recommended Charity: Maliau Basin Conservation

The soundscape in Borneo changes quickly as darkness descends upon the rainforest. At 5.30pm the dusk chorus is in full force, with a variety of birds singing beautifully. Half an hour later, as the sun sets, the beautiful birdsong is a distant memory, taken over by the harsh electric sound of Empress cicadas and other insects calling.
