A New Initiative

Welcome to a new online initiative featuring the sounds of some of the West’s most iconic species and places. The Acoustic Atlas will collect the sounds of Montana and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, along with habitats and species from throughout the Western United States.

In the coming months, we will be adding many new recordings to this website. We invite you to listen to samples from the collection on these pages, as well as featured recordings from around the region.
