Rainforest soundscape – A forest in the clouds
Recordist: George VladBale Mountains National Park, Ethiopia
Recommended charity: FZS Ethiopia
In the cloud forests of Ethiopia the soundscape is decidedly different from lowland rainforests like the Congo or the Amazon. There are less insects overall, so hearing distance is greater. There's still plenty of humidity but it's colder and as a result wildlife has to conserve energy.
