Summary
In Calls of the Wild, an episode of PBS Scientific American Frontiers, host Alan Alda takes us behind the scenes for a fascinating journey into the science of sound as he introduces viewers to the team of scientists using sound to study animals - also known as the field of bioacoustics. This close look at animal sound is not only being used to study - but even to save species - as common as the harbor porpoise and as elusive and mysterious as the giant squid. And as the program reveals by listening in on animals such as elephants, birds, bats, bees, bugs and more, scientists have made significant strides in their efforts to hinder the growth of our endangered species list
