Recordist: Listening Earth
Location: Tepepare Island, Solomon Islands
Habitat: Tropical coastline & rainforest
Notes: Gentle waves roll ashore, and as they recede, coral fragments tinkle delicately in the backwash. Among the coral debris, hermit crabs scurry busily, carrying their crazy variety of shelly homes. From the rainforest behind come the occasional calls of lorikeets, mynahs and fruit pigeons.
