The SM2+ climbs aboard the Turanor PlanetSolar!

The world's largest solar powered boat, the Turanor PlanetSolar, is on a mission to spread the message of sustainable energy while investigating and raising public awareness about climate change. It is currently on it's 2013 DeepWater expedition, where the boat will travel along the Gulf Stream, collecting data from both water and air. We are pleased to announce that our very own SM2+ bioacoustics recorder will be traveling along with it. This past Friday, I went with our Product Manager, Sherwood Snyder, and Mona Doss, Director of Sales, to show the science team how to use the device which we had just donated to them.

We always enjoy hearing research updates from scientists who have deployed Wildlife Acoustics devices around the world. Recently, we caught up with Jared Towers, Minke Whale Research Director at MERS, to hear about the exciting research developments they have made with Minke whales. Here’s what he had to say:

In the Field: Song Meters allow researchers to better sample bird species in the tropics

In the Field: Song Meters allow researchers to better sample bird species in the tropics

We are always pleased to hear that our products are making life easier for scientists. That’s what one group from Charles University in Prague found when they published a study comparing conventional bird sampling using our  Song Scape feature from our Song Scope feature. The research noted that the autonomous capability of the Song Meters was highly useful in studying birds in remote areas of the tropics.
