Song Meter SM4 acoustic recorders and Kaleidoscope Pro software used in a multi-year project to monitor entire seasons of frog chorusing behavior at suburban and forested ponds. Songscapes will be created to compare visual representations of ambient sounds, analyzing chorus-wide interruptions and changes in chorus frequencies as adaptions to noisy suburban habitats.Read the Case Study
With the mission to advance the conservation of animals through bioacoustics recording technology, every quarter we award up to $5,000 of product-in-kind grants. To date, the program has awarded more than 40 biologists, researchers, educators, citizen scientists and students nearly $90,000 in in-kind hardware and software donations.
