Have you ever wanted to learn how to speak whale? Here’s your chance!
Cornell University has recently completed digitizing its catalog of animal sounds. With audio and video recordings dating back to 1929, the archive contains over 9,000 species.
The recordings include the familiar call of the herring gull that you may have encountered threatening to steal your lunch on a New England beach and the subtle pulses of Atlantic hake. Cornell’s scientists traveled from the Antarctic to Alaska, capturing the sounds of nature’s other languages.
