In this module you can select any of the 14 habitats, ranging
from Forest to Marine. You can browse each habitat by viewing photographs, distribution
maps and reading texts relating to the selected habitat. There are slide shows of
the habitat photographs that you can view. These slide shows are accompanied by
amazing habitat soundtracks that correspond to the selected habitat. You can also
listen to the bird calls of each habitat by selecting the autoplay function or by
selecting a bird in the list. The Habitat module can be accessed from the home page
and modules menu.
