How the study of soundscapes enables discovery, conservation, and engagement with wildlife

Sound recordings have become a powerful tool for unlocking a new understanding of nature.

Taking you on a sound journey from the forests of Indonesia to the plains of Victoria, Dr. Karen Rowe will show how new ways to record and analyse sound can help to catalogue wildlife and work to protect critically endangered species.

She will also highlight a citizen-science project that uses sound to help community groups discover what lives in their local area and support habitat conservation while simultaneously building Museums Victoria’s increasingly significant digital sound library.
