BUFFALO, New York, February 28, 2008 – – Having surpassed $900 million in sales, according to the Audio Publishers Association, the audience for audiobooks is growing rapidly and the genre will soon include a new title.
Production has been completed on author David S. Wilcove’s chronicle of the decline of the world’s great animal migrations entitled No Way Home, published by Island Press. Narrator for the audiobook was professional male voice talent Peter K. O’Connell, president of audio’connell Voice Over Talent.
A professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Princeton University, Wilcove’s book describes how the phenomenon of animal migration is disappearing around the world based on many reasons ranging from climate change to cell phone towers. In addition to revealing the threats to the migration of birds, butterflies, fish, whales and large mammals across the globe, the book also outlines why these animals migrate and how they know when and where to travel.
