Escape to the sounds of nature

We take a break from these stressful times and immerse ourselves in the sounds of the natural world, free of human beings and their noise.

We are all going through some challenging times, a pandemic, an election whirlwind or maybe other things in life. So, we wanted to give you a break, a chance to step away from the stress and into the wild.

On this special episode of THE WILD, we listen to a dawn chorus in Eastern Washington and ravens off the fog-drenched shores of the Oregon coast.

These sounds were recorded by Gordon Hempton the Sound Tracker and co-founder of Quiet Parks International.

THE WILD is a production of KUOW in Seattle in partnership with Chris Morgan and Wildlife Media. This special edition was produced by Jim Gates and Brendan Sweeney with help from Matt Martin and David Brown.
