This boxed set of two audio CDs and two colour booklets is an invitation to experience the rich world of the sounds of the Seychelles. The first disc presents a selection of 14 beautiful soundscapes of the granitic islands: concerts of wild animals, natural elements like the waves of the ocean, the wind and the drizzle in the giant leaves of the Coco-de-mer, waterfalls and mountain streams, and some human traditional activities. The second disc is a sound guide with the songs, calls and other sounds produced by 51 wild animal species of the Seychelles (33 birds, 5 mammals, 2 reptiles, 3 frogs and 8 insects). Each species is illustrated by a colour painting, and accompanying text provides information on the characteristics of its vocalisations, its biology and its status.
