Excerpted from the website:
- Fauna Communications Research Institute, founded in 1992, is a non-profit (501- C3) institute dedicated to the study of animal communication, especially those animals that are endangered in the wild. This type of animal communication research contributes extensively to the knowledge of an animal, and helps with its continued conservation and protection. We have a vocalization database of endangered and threatened species that we are continually updating. Humans tend to equate communication with intelligence, perhaps the public would do more to protect these great creatures if they consider them knowing.
