U-Turn Round – Girona Spain, Audio Trail
Constructed from marine grade stainless steel and powered completely via a wind-up dynamo it provides access to 8 different messages even in the harshest of environments.
Girona Spain is now home to a U-Turn Round audio trail in Park de les Ribes, a popular location for experiencing local wildlife with an especially diverse bird population nesting in the area, varying greatly throughout the year.
Spanish interpretive specialists BDU (also our official distributor in Spain) were commissioned to develop an interpretive strategy which would see the addition of an audio trail around Park de les Ribes. The aim is to engage people with the local wildlife by helping them understand the bird population and better recognise each species by sight and sound.
BDU developed a plan which would utilise outdoor audio points powered by user generated energy. When coupled with the need to be highly vandal resistant (as demonstrated by the current state of accompanying signage – pictured below) the U-Turn Round was an obvious choice. Constructed from marine grade stainless steel and powered completely via a wind-up dynamo it provides access to 8 different messages even in the harshest of environments.
Utilising custom wooden plinths built around our U-Turn Round Export Collar, each U-Turn plays 8 different bird songs with graphics showing the various birds they belongs too – as well as directions on how to use the audio point.
