Canid Howl Project
|Presented By||National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis at the University of Tennessee|
|Goal||Understand the vocal behavior of dogs, wolves and other canids.|
|Task||Listen to howls and help decipher their spectrograms.|
Come listen to the enchanting, haunting sounds of wolves, coyotes, and dogs, and help us better understand and conserve these species.
Analysing these recordings is difficult and time consuming. It's easy to make mistakes, and mistakes can change the conclusions that we draw. But here's where you can help! By having hundreds, even thousands of volunteers giving their own analysis of the canid howls, we can investigate the role of these sounds, and understand more about the social behaviour of the whole range of canid species and breeds.
You can also donate your dog's howl for the project.
