Jim Dempsey goes on location in Brownsberg Nature Park in Suriname to help place special cameras that will help understand the biodiversity of the park. What makes this park of over eight thousand hectares so special is that it is the northernmost outpost of many species of plants and animals normally found further south.

This programme contains unique sound recordings from a place that is home to rare and shy cats including jaguars, as well as eight types of monkeys and hundreds of species of trees.
