Sound Science Research Collective

Welcome to the Sound Science Research Collective. We are a federally recognized 501c(3) marine conservation non-profit dedicated to excellence in research and equity in science. Our team is made up of bioacousticians and ecologists from throughout the United States. We bonded over a common desire to do impactful ecological research and to empower overlooked and disenfranchised scientists to do the same.

Our work is primarily, though not exclusively, centered around using bioacoustics as a tool to understand the natural world and inform conservation problems. We are committed to providing a platform for young researchers and students, and seek collaborations with local communities or early career researchers interested in developing acoustic monitoring projects.

We ask for your patience as we get our website off the ground, and ask you to check in from time to time as our story unfolds. In the meantime, if you’d like to make a donation to our ongoing research and social equity goals please click the link below. We appreciate your support.
