Marc Anderson, the winner of the Beautiful Now sound competition has a site called Nature Soundmap where you can listen to sounds from around the world.

Check out the other sections of the Beautiful Now site too. The food/drink section has some very nice things.

Excellent! I love this; just the sort of 'white noise' that I like for background while I'm on the computer. Thanks!

Antarctica Groaning Icebergs sounds like something from outer space!

I listened to the lions and baboons on the savannah at night and wondered how anybody ever slept at all in that place! Then I found the bird songs--six recordings from Costa Rica alone--and a YT of 180 minutes of bird songs. I love the map linking; I guess I am just a sucker for a map.

Cool idea, and well executed - thanks for posting the link, unilateral!

I hope they are able to keep adding sounds, especially from regions that are not yet represented.

A similar set of sounds is Sonic Wonderland

OH JESUS THEY'RE COMING FOR ME.

(The Yosemite Dawn Chorus one is lovely, however.)

Is there a way for it to stream all of them, one after the other? I would love to leave this on in the background, enjoying it, and then suddenly go "Wait, WTF was THAT!?" and click over-- "Ooh, barred owl. Got it."
