“My wish is to bring awareness, not just to the species [and habitats] on these albums, but to the many animals [and places] whose existence is threatened. These albums are the voice of the voiceless. It is up to each and every one of us to protect what we have left…”

In a world increasingly obsessed with an alternative reality, the Metaverse and trading NFTs, we are too often turning a blind eye to what is happening here, now, in the physical world.

“Every single recording I’ve made, 90,000-plus files, has a unique story behind them. When you actually see something disappear – I saw the Hawaiian crow disappear on the Big Island; there’s 25 left in captivity – it’s heartbreaking. But if we treat the robin or the magpie, the lion or the polar bear, like it was physically endangered, we’d go a long way to understanding what we need to do preserve this planet.”
