                          ABOUT  US

Fauna Communications Research Institute 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.The institute conducts  communication-behavior correlation studies on species that have never been recorded before. Our focus is also on creating empirical and objective language acquisition research with animals. We now have the technology to create secondary languages and study interspecies communication empirically.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

 

 

 

    

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
