Cornell has been at the forefront of bioacoustics, a combination of biology and acoustics that studies how animals use sound in their surroundings. It enables researchers to “listen in” on habitats to learn how animals respond to their environments, including the threats they face from both natural and man-made sources.

The program will now by renamed the K. Lisa Yang Center for Conservation Bioacoustics in honor of Ms. Yang, who is a Cornell alum. The gift, the largest in the Center’s history, will be used to advance research, new partnerships and bioacoustics best practices. In addition, the gift will endow the John W. Fitzpatrick Directorship for the center, in honor of the lab’s longtime leader.

“We’re living in a tremendously exciting time for the kind of critically important, machine learning-driven research that’s happening at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology,” said President Martha E. Pollack. “Lisa Yang’s generous and timely gift will allow the Center for Conservation Bioacoustics team to keep doing the kind of high-impact terrestrial, aquatic and marine bioacoustics research for which they are renowned.
