Experience the great wealth of wildlife on our planet through a journey in sound. In partnership with the Wildlife Sound Recording Society, the British Library is proud to present this two-disc set of recordings from across the globe. The twenty-two recordings, all made by WSRS members, come from locations as diverse as Great Britain, Germany, Hungary, Cyprus, Sweden, Australia, Borneo, Malawi, Madagascar, Canada, and Venezuela. Hear the Blackcap, Coot, and Moorhen at Lake Zawadowka in Poland, the Oriental Turtle Dove and Striated Laughingthrush in India, and the Great Frigatebird and Red-Footed Booby recorded in the unique habitat of the Galapagos Islands—a worldwide panorama of wild places.
