We introduce a new approach—acoustic restoration—focusing on the applied utility of soundscapes for restoration, recognizing the rich ecological and social values they encapsulate. Broadcasting soundscapes in disturbed areas can accelerate recolonization of animals and the microbes and propagules they carry; long duration recordings are also ideal sources of data for benchmarking restoration initiatives and evocative engagement tools.
