Why Is the Amazon Rainforest So Noisy?

How is it possible to enjoy an Amazon Rainforest nature study when most of us will never travel to South America for a nature walk? It’s easy. Not every nature study topic has to be experienced outdoors. When a nature walk isn’t possible, the next best thing is to study from afar. This episode of the No Sweat Nature Study Podcast does just that!

Take an imaginary journey to hear the sounds of biodiversity as we discuss why the Amazon Rainforest is so noisy. You might think animals are the only noise-makers, but that’s not necessarily true!
