The planes, the trains, the ships have stopped. For the time being, COVID-19 has suspended this unbearable noise of ours. The grey heron is searching for food on a river bank. We often sit together there and observe the water. I with my hydrophone immersed under the surface of the water and the heron keeping a sharp eye on the fish that have spread in these waters, having become accustomed to the noise of the boats. When the fog concealing the future will have lifted, I hope we will be able to keep an open and attentive ear to what the animals we coexist with have to say.
The heron and I – we think about the pangolin finally able to walk in its natural environment without having to worry about ending up on someone's plate.
