Humankind's future depends on a healthy planet

Nature is coming close to a breaking point. The balance of our planet is critically threatened by human activities and climate change: the whole food web is affected, which directly puts our fragile sustainability on Earth at risk.

The Sense of Silence Foundation contributes to resolving the Human - Nature conflict through a conciliatory approach: working for the conservation and regeneration of biodiversity while respecting current economic and societal challenges.

The Sense of Silence in the Media

"Noise pollution has led to multiple whale-strandings and poses a threat to thousands of ocean creatures."

"The killer noise is threatening ocean life. The oceans are full of noise – both natural and man-made."

"The ocean was called 'the world of silence`, but as soon as you release a microphone in the water, it turns to be a cacophony of sounds"

A Foundation to take the pulse of Nature

The Sense of Silence monitors soundscapes 24/7, on land and at sea through more than 150 observatories that process bioacoustics data. This unique and innovative technology identifies and analyses all sound components in real time: animal sounds, human made noise and natural phenomena. It operates at depths of more than 3000 meters or at the top of the tallest trees in the Amazon forest.

It detects breaches, alerts governments and operators; and it offers solutions adapted to each habitat, in close collaboration with the local indigenous communities. Already present in most oceans, in the Amazon rainforest and in Asia, our technology has made it possible to establish the first global mapping of underwater acoustic pollution and to understand the health of the most inaccessible ecosystems of the planet. Thanks to the data collected, the Foundation initiates targeted conservation programs around the world.
