A core aim of the society is to encourage participation in the collection of these wonderful sounds, and to promote the need to understand their meanings.
Through its members, the Society fosters developing recording skills and techniques as well as promoting the study of bioacoustics. Members of WSRS benefit from learning about how to go about recording wildlife sounds, where to go, what equipment to use, what to do with the sounds that have been captured, as well as being alerted to some of the pit-falls to avoid.
New to wildlife sound recording? Take a look at our newcomer's guide to find out what you need to get started at a modest cost.

Leading contemporary sound artists and musicians Nico Muhly, Susan Philipsz OBE, Gabriel Yared, Jamie xx, Chris Watson, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller have been commissioned to respond to a painting of their choice from the National Gallery collection. Each brand new 'soundscape' has been specially created for the exhibition. The sound artists and musicians have their own space in the exhibition in which their chosen painting and their new soundscape has been installed. These immersive and site specific installations give visitors the opportunity to experience and think about paintings in an entirely new way– to hear the sound within the painting and to see the visual within the sound. This style of exhibition has never before been staged at the National Gallery.
