  Bird calls of the rainforest

“There is a sound of the forest that tells us that it is light, at midday we hear a different sound.  Different kinds of birds and their sounds tell us a lot about  how well the forest is.. It is a sign of life  - of a good forest.  I want to live like a Penan. I don’t want to lose my forest. The identify of the Penan will be gone if we lose the forest. We must care for it and protect it.”
