Thanks for the warm welcome, Suz! In much the same way that birding organizations focus their outreach on getting kids to watch the natural world, Wild Sanctuary makes special efforts to get them to Listen to outdoor habitats. Bernie and colleagues do most of the field recordings, while I concentrate on reaching into cyberspace or the public forum to help connect people to the wild and encourage them to retain a personal connection to wilderness in the digital age. That a few other zillion things! As a busy person yourself, I'm sure you know what I mean. But, as they say, '...it's all good!' I am pleased to participate in CN&N and look forward to learning more about all the great efforts here.
Hi Kat! Welcome to C&NN. Wild Sanctuary sounds quite interesting. I look forward to hearing much more about your work, the project, and how people can hear all the sounds of the wild that you've gathered.
