Question 1 – Recording from BrisbaneIn every city, crossings are organized this way. Everyone respects the guidance, nobody but tourists would cross when the light is red. And the noise comes with the lights.
Currently, Cairns Regional Council and the Novotel Cairns Oasis Resort are planning to disperse a colony of spectacled flying-foxes from the Cairns. Of course, environmental associations flight against this decision : “The colony does not pose a significant risk to the community, and we believe it should be left where it is. Flying-foxes are important pollinators and seed dispersers, and help to keep the rainforest healthy. In addition, the colony attracts many tourists who come to see the flying-foxes roosting during the day and flying out at night.”
Well, in my opinion, it is terribly noisy and pretty scary…
Question 3 – Recording from the Daintree Forest
This is a Didgeridoo. It is a wind instrument developed by Indigenous Australians of northern Australia around 1,500 years ago and still in widespread use today both in Australia and around the world. It is sometimes described as a natural wooden trumpet or “drone pipe”.
