AUDIO WILD is a curated audio experience by Juliet Whitsett, and sourced from interview excerpts with conservation biologist, Darrell Hutchinson as he shares insights about this endangered species.
With roughly ~150 threatened & ~66 endangered species in Texas alone, Juliet Whitsett has been learning, creating art about and sharing the importance of our world’s biodiversity. As an artist, her digital, acrylic, and experiential audio art pieces aim to simulate virtual encounters with our rarest and most at risk species.

The Endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler is a Central-Texas gem. If you ever have the opportunity to see or hear one of these birds, you know you are in the presence of a uniquely native Texan. It ONLY breeds exclusively in Texas, specifically using nesting materials harvested from Ashe juniper bark - Juniperus ashei (cedar trees).
