Spring (bat acoustics) Training is here!

With spring in full force, many of you are already bringing your bat detectors to the field. Be ready for the next phase of analysis by attending one of our in-depth bat acoustics training courses. A variety of locations, course duration, and content are available depending on what suits you best.

We're giving $5,000 back to bats!

Thanks to you, we are donating $5,000 to bat conservation.

In late 2017, the release of iOS 11 caused first generation Echo Meter Touch modules to suddenly stop working (Echo Meter Touch 2 and Echo Meter Touch 2 Pro were unaffected by the update). While Apple assured us they were working on a solution, we also came up with a firmware fix so that our customers could get right back to recording bats as soon as possible. This meant, however, that some owners of the first generation Echo Meter Touch had to send their modules back to us or to one of our service centers.

We decided to create an incentive for customers to send back their modules by pledging to donate $10 USD for every Echo Meter Touch returned before January 31, 2018.
