Rainforest sounds – Night in the Amazon jungle
Recordist: George VladReserva territorial Madre de Dios, Peru
Recommended charity: Junglekeepers
During the day, the sounds of the Amazon jungle are lush, lively and varied. Birds sing beautifully, frogs croak and mammals call occasionally. As dusk falls, the soundscape becomes louder, more piercing but also less varied. Insects make up a lot of it, assisted by many frogs and the occasional mammal for good measure. Bats are common too, although I can barely hear their high frequency calls.
