We Slept in the Jungle Last Night

We'd just helped install solar panels on an observation tower in Chitwan National Park, Nepal. The tower would soon kickstart an ecotourism income stream to help fund the park's anti-poaching operations. The solar panels were the last step. The jungle had made sounds all night; but by morning it was silent.
