Manual data collection can be costly and requires significant investments in training time and resources, which makes it largely inaccessible for the general population.
Many citizen scientists lack the expertise needed to accurately identify certain species, resulting in misidentification and skewed data. What’s more, it would take years of training and education for volunteers to obtain the proper skills.
Traditional forms of nature education are hands-off, creating a disconnect between participants and the species or environment they are studying.
Acoustic recorders support citizen science efforts by generating interest and increasing participation among students and community members.
Bioacoustics recorders are a powerful tool for bridging the gap between sound, the natural world, and those studying it – allowing everyday enthusiasts to connect more deeply with nature.
Wildlife audio monitoring allows participants to be directly involved without investing significant amounts of time and resources. Capabilities like real-time species identification keep field surveyors engaged throughout the research process.
