Dusk by the river in the Amazon rainforest – Jungle sounds

Artist: George Vlad
Reserva territorial Madre de Dios, Peru
Recommended charity: Junglekeepers

Dawn and dusk in the Amazon rainforest are particularly lush when it comes to biophony, especially by a slow flowing river. The stark contrast between the beauty of birdsong and the shrill urgency of insect calls is never as evident. The river itself acts as a border and connection for a myriad unseen worlds, a meeting point and boundary for the inhabitants of the rainforest. Contact calls, warning calls, begging calls, scolding calls, alarms – the language of wildlife ebbs and flows with the day/night cycle. is a completely free streaming service of 800+ nature sounds from around the world, offering natural soundscapes and guided meditations for people who wish to listen to nature, relax, and become more connected.
