Welcome, Mark! Your site is terrific and your new Vimeo group is yet another good way to help share and promote the world of soundscapes. Mentoring and encouraging young people to use their great digital skills on behalf of the natural world is an important part of helping fto keep vital soundscapes (and habitats) vital. The more awareness raised about the nature of tranquil places free from human induced noise, the better! Feel free to start a dialogue, connect with others, and post your work. The Soundscape Support Team has been a bit 'quiet' themselves lately; perhaps with the onset of spring things will get more lively! Best of luck with your efforts. KK
