Australia | Indigenous rangers, ecologists team up to protect rainforest

Behind the sand dunes of the Dampier Peninsula, in the far west of the Kimberley region of Australia, the landscape is alive, the air filled with the sound of great bowerbirds (Chlamydera nuchalis) flitting between helicopter trees (Gyrocarpus americanus).
