  • Summary

  • Join lauded marine biologist Dr. Sarika Cullis-Suzuki for an intimate tour of the wild heart of the nation. From the Tombstone Mountains of the Yukon Territory to the glowing grasslands of Saskatchewan, each episode is alive with the buzzes, warbles, and howls of Canadian wildlife. Cullis-Suzuki is your guide, painting a picture of the landscapes around you while letting you in on the wilderness stories unfolding. Curl up under the night sky in Newfoundland, and listen to a conversation between little brown bats as they leave their roost. Dip your toes in the Pacific Ocean while listening to the other-worldly humming of the plainfin midshipman (a toad fish). You’ll follow a pod of orcas, hear the crash of glaciers, and relax to the chorus of songbirds at dawn. It’s nature like you’ve never heard it before!

Perfect for my blind Father

My Dad loved visiting the National Parks. When he lost his eyesight he relied on us to describe what we were seeing. He loved this podcast. All of the animals sounds and sounds of nature. The narration was just enough to keep him fully engaged. Thank you so much! Please do more episodes!!!

Soundscape with narration.

I like listening to soundscapes as I go to bed. Wasn’t sure I’d like the narration but I loved this podcast. The animal noises are amazing and the narrator was really good.
I think this podcast would be especially enjoyable to little kids and feed their great imaginations.

Informative and just all around lovely

There was not one thing I do not like about the entire series. Sarika has the most calming voice. Production is outstanding. I have listen to all episodes many times and will listen many times more.
Closing my eyes I can see, smell and experience it all.

I hope there are other production from these people.

Something good from 2020

2020 was a tough year for most of the human world. How amazing that Sarika Cullis-Suzuki, Audible productions, and the sound recording team could take advantage of these months of human quiet to record the sounds of the natural world.

This may be the best thing to come out of 2020. Both these recordings, and the opportunity to acknowledge how *loud* our species is.

Despite the horrible circumstances of the pandemic, it’s good to know that the whales, bats, and birds had a year of quiet in which to talk with one another.

These recordings are a treasure.

Perfect bedtime podcast

The sounds of nature combined with the narrator’s voice are perfect bedtime soul soothers. Since there really is no story, I can listen to this multiple times and not lose the calming effect.

definitely not a sleep sound

was hoping for a soundtrack if sounds of bird, waves, ect but it's more of a documentary aimed towards that of children or those without much knowledge of nature. Narrator doesn't have a soothing voice so is definitely not a sleep sound.

Newfoundland

I thought it was a good listen. Short. I would have liked to hear how it was formed . A little more detail about the original people & how the Vikings then got to be there.

Excellent!

This is the best thing I've listened to in a long time. Interesting, informative and relaxing, this is a fabulously rich aural tour of Canada's vast wildernesses which perfectly merges informative and entertaining narration with high quality natural sounds to create a unique listening experience.

Oh, what an excellent audiobook!

I really loved the audiobook, lots of information about the different animals and the sounds make it so interesting but also relaxing. I listened to it in bed to fall asleep. Too bad that you have to manually start the next episode and it doesn't start playing automatically just like in other audiobooks with chapters instead of episodes. Hope that audible will do something about this because it was pretty disrupting.

This guided 3D soundscape is fantastic!

Absolutely delicious! The listening experience is like being involved in an interactive mind movie in which Sarika is your guide and teaching you about it's landscape and environment. Wonderful! I wish there were more guided natural soundscapes like this out there to experience and learn from. It's probably one of the most enjoyable ways to learn about the environment and nature from the comfort of your armchair.

Thank you Dr Suzuki!

I loved this podcast which took me to so many natural ecosystems in Canada.. I learned a lot and her narration brought the sounds to life for me as I had a context and educational commentary to compliment it. Superb and serene. It's just what a lockdown world needs. Please do more of these and consider other countries or continents for your sounds stories.
