Abstract

We introduce a new approach—acoustic restoration—focusing on the applied utility
of soundscapes for restoration, recognising the rich ecological and social values
they encapsulate. Broadcasting soundscapes in disturbed areas can accelerate recolonisation of animals and the microbes and propagules they carry; long duration recordings are also ideal sources of data for benchmarking restoration initiatives and evocative engagement tools.
