In order to preserve some of nature’s most beautiful sounds, Yellowstone National Park is creating a sound library to archive audio recordings of the park.

The archive is just another way to spread awareness about the sheer magnitude of wildlife that exists within Yellowstone, which stretches across Wyoming and parts of Montana and Idaho.

Listen to the public-domain sound recordings here!

Jerrett says too often her recordings pick up human sounds, like tourists and traffic. She hopes the recordings will capture the park’s ecosystems as they are at this moment in time, and remind people that the land — and all national parks — are worthy of respect and protection.
