“I remind myself every morning: Nothing I say this day will teach me anything. So if I'm going to learn, I must do it by listening” - Larry King
Being a good listener has been extolled as one of the highest virtues throughout history and in nearly every culture. It has been associated with wisdom, courage, and humility. Here at Wildlife Acoustics, it’s central to everything we make.
All the time, discoveries are being made by scientists using our Song Meter bioacoustics recorders. Through our network of customers, we have ears all over the world. We are listening to the ocean (cetaceans), the trees (birds), and the night sky (bats). Our craft is making products that are good at listening.
Yet we’re not only striving to make products that listen better, but to be better listeners ourselves. We take our customer feedback to heart, continually heading back to the drawing board to give you products we can be proud of and ones that you will equip you best for your research needs. We’re in the good-listening business together, and ultimately we understand that the only way we are going to heal our planet is by listening to what it has to say.
We’re celebrating World Listening Day by opening up our social media channels to you. Let us know what you think and what we can do better. We’re all ears.
World Listening Day is July 18th. For more info, visit the World Listening Project website.
