Can you imagine nature without sound? No bellbirds, or lyrebirds. No bleating frogs or whispering leaves. No nature’s call to tell the story of the wonder of the forest.
For some scientists seeing is believing, but for Bush Heritage ecologist Daniella Teixiera it’s hearing that is believing. With the support of Woodland Bird Ecologist Courtney Melton, Teixiera is leading a large-scale acoustic monitoring project to measure the condition of woodland bird communities in Queensland.
Their ethos is that a rich soundscape, is a healthy landscape, and that sound is a vital solution to land management and protection.
Featuring Dr Daniella Teixiera, Dr Courtney Melton and Professor Paul Roe.
