Eavesdropping on Elephants--How Listening Helps Conservation

Eavesdropping on Elephants--How Listening Helps Conservation by Patricia Newman is about the extensive and truly marvelous communication among forest elephants. A lot of it is very deep “infrasound” and outside the range of human hearing; their huge ears enable them to capture these deep rumbles. The scientists profiled in this book set up camp in the Central African Republic and established The Elephant Listening Project. Elephants were recorded and observed; the data helped determine how they use their environment and how to protect it. The beautiful photographs bring the project to life. (Non-Fiction)
