Educational Moment: Biophony

To learn more about the word coined by Dr. Krause, Biophony, or the the cumulative non-human sound produced by living organisms in a given biome, please visit Acoustic Ecology.
It is also a great resource to learn more about conservational biology.

You can also read about it on Neighborhood Newswire, a San Francisco Community Power organization.

More can be read at Wikitionary.

Making noise for Google Earth

This just in from the blog Ogle Earth.

"Excellent: Bernie Krause's biophony recordings, soundscapes of nature, look like they'll be turned into a KML layer soon, reports O'reilly Radar. Until then, try Freesound, a site with georeferenced ambient sounds that comes with its own KML layer. Still one of my favorites. (More about the possibilities for navigating using sound for the sight impaired here.)"

We are working on some great things here at Wild Sanctuary. Don't forget to check us out at Where 2.0 this May.
