You have just returned from collecting your SD cards from a deployment and you find files on the cards that have the word “dump” in the name.
We love hearing about how our tools are being used around the world and we know that you do too. I recently asked Winifred Frick, Director of Conservation Science at Bat Conservation International to update us on their use of the Song Meter SM4BAT and Echo Meter Touch in Africa. Below is what she had to say about the beginnings of their recent effort in Rwanda:
The growing demand for conducting passive acoustic monitoring of bats allowed me, a self-employed bat specialist, to purchase five SM4BAT FS recorders. The choice of passive recorders and analysis software today was somewhat overwhelming, but because the SM4BAT recorders are fully weatherproof, have a decent deployment time, an option to be cable lock secured to a tree and of course the three year warranty length, the decision to choose SM4BAT recorders was a swift one.
