Xeno-canto - Wildlife sounds from around the world

Project name: Global Biodiversity Information Facility datasets

Dataset summary : <p>Xeno-canto (XC) is an online database that provides access to sound recordings of wildlife from around the world. The recordings are shared by a growing community of thousands of recordists from around the world, amateurs and professionals alike. The aim of Xeno-canto is to eventually represent sounds of all animals, meaning of all taxa, to subspecies level, of their complete repertoire, with all of the geographic variability, at all stages of development.</p> <p>The website of Xeno-canto (www.xeno-canto.org) was launched in 2005, and initially focussed on Neotropical birds. The scope of Xeno-canto is gradually widening. It is run by the Xeno-canto Foundation for Nature Sounds in The Netherlands, with support from Naturalis Biodiversity Center.</p> <p>Please note that the Xeno-canto dataset shared on GBIF is currently a subset of the entire XC collection that is available on www.xeno-canto.org. Only the recordings by recordists who have given their permission to share recording metadata with GBIF are shared at the moment. We expect the dataset to increase over time, as more recordists give permission to share data with GBIF.</p>
