The 300th recording has now been added to Nature Soundmap!
Felix Blume recorded frogs & toads calling in a pond on the Niger Delta in Mali.
I’ve almost caught up with the backlog of recordings and looking forward to receiving new submissions. As always, recordings from areas not already covered, of endangered species or from threatened habitats are particularly welcome.
A dynamic list which shows the most recent recordings added to Nature Soundmap now appears in the blog’s sidebar. To see it navigate to the “What’s New” page from the main menu at the top of the page.
January was a busy month following the launch of Nature Soundmap. The exposure we received was excellent, with posts, articles and tweets from BBC Future, Africa Geographic, Macaulay Library, XenoCanto.org, The Wilderness Society, Australian Museum and the Australian Conservation Foundation. Almost 50K page views with 22K visitors in a period of three weeks was a great result!
In the last week or so, Nature Soundmap has gained popularity amongst school teachers, with numerous articles promoting the site appearing in education-related blogs and websites. In fact last Tuesday was our best ever in terms of page views – over 9000 views in 24 hours.
Great to see that Nature Soundmap has been noticed & promoted as a free resource for teachers on the website www.freetech4teachers.com
Great to see a post on BBC Future’s Facebook page about Nature Soundmap!
Internationally-renowned nature & travel magazine Africa Geographic have just posted an article on their blog about Nature Soundmap. Thanks to Janine & the team at Africa Geographic for helping to spread the word!
A big thank you to the Wilderness Society & the Australian Conservation Foundation for helping get the word out about Nature Soundmap. Great to see so many people have shared the posts with their own networks!
