.The Soundscape : Our Sonic Environment and the Tuning of the World by R. Murray Schafer.

Noise PollutionNoise Pollution : Earth's Conditions Series by Zachary Inseth

"Pollution is an overgrowing environmental nuisance, and noise pollution is intruding life in every house of today's big cities. There are several ways to confront noise pollution, like physical means, legal ways, or educational efforts. This book deals with noise pollution by teaching children how it is caused and created, how it affects people and how it can be blocked and reduced. It also makes them aware to the damage it may cause to any human being. In simple language, large fonts and nice pictures, fact by fact, this book tells the nature of noise, how it is caused, and the ways to fight it. Children, as we all know, are tomorrow's citizens, and should better be ready to eliminate the growing levels of pollution by every means, like reading such book. It is highly recommended to every school library in the western world's big cities." -- Shlomo Arad

Interspecies Communication
The only organization in the world with a research program dedicated to interfacing with wild animals (especially dolphins and whales) through music, art, and ceremony. (IC is a US non-profit) founded in 1978 to promote a better understanding of what is communicated between human beings and other animals. Our methods focus an integration of the arts and the sciences with a strong emphasis placed upon environmental preservation. This holistic approach seems especially important right now because the environmental crisis we all face is largely crisis in how we humans perceive our place within nature. The work of IC functions primarily to help people re-establish their emotional, spiritual, and cultural ties with the natural world.
