Paula Fairfield, the sound designer "Game of Thrones," visited White Oak Conservation in Yulee to find the voice of Danerys' dragons in the latest season. She used sounds from the conservation center's rhinos and cranes to bring the mythical creature to life.

“We live in a world where our animals are disappearing at a rapid rate," Fairfield said, according to the post. "So it's powerful for me to listen to their beautiful voices and use them in this space."
