Costa Rica project aims to heal with sounds of nature

Tuesday, June 27, 2017


The sounds of rains, winds, waves, or the trilling of birds in Costa Rica could soon be used as a therapeutic tool to improve the quality of life of people with disabilities.

Researchers from the University of Costa Rica, along with various local groups, recorded nature sounds at various sites across the Osa peninsula, in Costa Rica’s southern Pacific, between January and February as part of the Osa Sensorial Project. The initiative seeks to identify the natural sounds of the Osa Peninsula and evaluate the areas of the human body that react to them.
