Douglas Quin

Douglas Quin is a composer, media designer and naturalist. In a decade of recording wildlife, Quin's field work has taken him from the mountain rainforests of Madagascar to the Brazilian Amazon and from Antarctica to the Alaskan Arctic. His recordings have been used by scientists and zoos internationally for research and education and he has designed media exhibitry for numerous museums, including most recently, the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History and the Chicago Academy of Sciences.

These MP3s are from Douglas Quin's CD 'Antarctica' featuring the amazing sounds of Emperor Penguins, Weddell Seals and their pups, Wind and Glaciers.

My favorites are the seals...absolutely amazing
Weddell Seal Mothers and Pup
Male elephant seal bellowing
Many of the sounds were recorded underwater...they sound like David Tudor compositions.
Male Weddell seal(s) maritorial calling recorded underwater
Leopard and Weddell seals recorded underwater

Chinstrap penguin rookery
Adelie penguin colony

Canada Glacier cooling with ice refreezing
Glacier calving in Loudwater Cove

There are plenty more sounds & information on the Antarctica 2000 website.
