of Silence

Silence just might be on the verge of extinction and acoustic ecologist Gordon Hempton believes that even the most remote corners of the globe are impacted by noise pollution. In Sanctuaries of Silence, join Hempton on an immersive virtual reality journey into Olympic National Park, one of the quietest places in North America.

Watch in 360 on The New York Times Op-Docs and Global Oneness Project and as VR on Within, NYT VR app and Jaunt VR app.
