About Us    Staff

The sound you hear on this page is a Jackass penguin.
 

Fauna Communications Research Institute, founded in 1992, is a non-profit (501- C3) institute dedicated to the study of animal communication, especially those animals that are endangered in the wild.  This type of animal communication research contributes extensively to the knowledge of an animal, and helps with its continued conservation and protection.  We have a vocalization database of endangered and threatened species that we are continually updating.

"Humans tend to equate communication with intelligence, perhaps the public would do more to protect these great creatures if they consider them knowing." EvM

We help other researchers, universities, zoos, and students conduct their own research, and also perform novel research of our own. While maintaining a distinct sense of humor about our limited senses and the state of the planet.

Goals

We believe that there are some animals that are capable of healing themselves. We can use this knowledge to generate new non-interventional methods for humans to employ, and to provide third-world countries with premium and inexpensive health care.   Computer and recording technology has come so far that we are able to test whether some animals, if not all, use grammatical structures like humans do. SEE OUR Polynesia Program. This research is not based on observation, so the results are completely objective. We present at major scientific conferences, and are published in major scientific journals. We are unafraid of studying new topics.
