Hank Lentfer and the wisdom of sound

In a previous post, I reported on the work of Hank Lentfer, who is halfway through a two-year project to record the sounds of nature in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska. He has written a lovely piece for the website of the Centre for Humans and Nature on what he has learnt so far: “Within the squawks of ravens, trumpets of whales, skittering of murrelets  and ripples of salmon is one compelling, absorbing, gorgeous, ever-changing, never-ending invitation to pay attention.”

You can read the piece on the website or, better still, listen to him read it on the soundfile below.
