When you’re in rainforest territory, being aware of real life surroundings and being present are of top importance. Instinctively, you want to know which creatures are where at every moment, and whether they’re friend or foe. All around, life in billions of forms—teaming, thrumming, humming, crawling, fluttering and flapping. Trillions of plants and trees of every imaginable form and shade of green. For millennia, this place has thrived like a single super-organism, regenerating in an endless cycle of interconnectedness and interdependence.
