WWF South Africa has launched a 10-hour long playlist titled “Bring Nature Inside”, which features soundscapes from nature recorded in areas where they are working.

“We wanted to allow people to experience the richness of nature. With many of us feeling overwhelmed by the current state of the world and the unique disruptions we are facing, it is imperative for us to take care of our mental and emotional well-being. Nature provides the perfect ‘escape’ that we need during this time,” says Justin Smith, head of business development at WWF South Africa.

From the soothing backdrop of a free-flowing river to the rhythmic sound of the Atlantic Ocean, each track features sounds with a description, and showcases the work WWF is doing to help protect South Africa’s natural heritage.

The calming and inspirational tracks include Soutpansberg, Highveld, Fishing, Rhino, Beach, Bees, Sugarbird, National Park, Windfarm and Pastures.

The soundscapes are available on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Deezer, Google Play and Amazon or visit for more information.

A percentage of the streaming royalties will go to support WWF SA’s ongoing conservation work, at no cost to the platform user.
