I am writing on behalf of the LWL-Museum für Naturkunde, Muenster, Germany.
The Museum is hard at work on their upcoming special exhibit, 
"Wale-Riesen der Meere" (Whales - Giants of the Sea).
The around 1700 sq. meter exhibit will be open to the public from 
September 21, 2012 to November 3, 2013.


To enhance the exhibit experience, the LWL-Museum has made the following 
requests for materials:

Sound clips of:

1) (navy) sonar
2) vessel traffic noise
3) other anthropogenic noise
4) heartbeat of blue whale

Video clips of:

5) whale (cetacean) birth
6) suckling whale calves
7) sleeping (resting) whales
8) entanglement in fishing gear

Photos of:

9) threats to whales (e.g. sonar, entanglement, pollution, whaling etc.).

While hoped that any of these materials are available as in-kind 
donations, the LWL-Museum of Natural History is willing to negotiate 
some kind of renumeration.
It is important that anyone offering these materials is the author 
and/or holds the original copyright.

Please, contact exhibit coordinator, Dr. Thorsten Pickel
