This project aims to develop a passive acoustic monitoring protocol to assess the effect of human-disturbance on anurans of the Calilegua National Park. We also intend to bring people closer to natural soundscapes and increase awareness of the preservation of intangible heritage that represents natural sounds of protected areas.
