Sounds of Denali: Ring Tones

Just as many virtual or in-person visitors seek inspiration in the wild landscape of Denali, so too can inspiration and beauty be found in the wild soundscape of Denali. Scientists in the park study up to eight new locations each year, as part of an on-going study to document the natural, non-human sounds of Denali, and assess the incursion of human-caused sounds.

Recordings from remote sound stations offer an audio window on the secret lives of animals and natural features in Denali. Available below are a number of sound clips taken from these sound stations to use as ring tones on your phone. We hope they remind you of memories you formed during a visit, or hint at the audio beauty of the park, if you've not yet visited.

In 1908, Charles Sheldon – a hunter and naturalist – described in his journal the idea of a park that would allow visitors to enjoy the beauty he saw while visiting Alaska. In 1917 his vision became reality, with the creation of Mount McKinley National Park.
