Zala county chorus was a 6 part radio programme broadcast through Soundart Radio in Devon from May to July 2010. It documented the sounds from a wildlife conservation project, with 3 British volunteers working with the Barn Owl Foundation of the Zala region of rural western Hungary
The programme was developed through a similar project called Sharpham Sounds which captured the audio of an innovative environmental project called Igomango, run from the Sharpham estate in south Devon.
Zala County Chorus was a fortnightly pre-recorded broadcast sent via the internet from Hungary to Britain and was designed to compare the wildlife and cultural experiences of volunteers in both countries.
An ongoing volunteer project between the two countries is funded by the Leonardo da Vinci European Mobility scheme and is made possible by the involvement of Ambios Ltd Uk , Gyöngybagolyvédelmi Alapítvány (The Hungarian Barn Owl Foundation) and the Barn Owl Trust of Devon.
