Turning Sound Into Discovery: Bioacoustics as a Valuable Research Tool

Tuesday, August 27th, 2019
1pm-5pm at Hôtel Château Laurier, Room George V

Sound analysis is increasingly becoming a valuable tool for biologists, environmental scientists and managers for surveying and monitoring wildlife populations. It is used to aid in resource management, animal behavior studies, habitat health assessment, regulatory compliance goals, and even documenting the effects of climate change.

Recording sound with a bioacoustics recorder is a reliable way to meet these project objectives. It is non-invasive, cost-effective and an unbiased method for studying animal presence. Biologists around the world have made the Song Meter platform the standard for bioacoustics recording with over 50,000 recorders deployed in 90 countries. 

The first half of this workshop will teach participants the features and set up of the Song Meter SM4 recorder to monitor for birds. 

The second half of the workshop will focus on mining your auditory data using the Kaleidoscope Pro software. Participants will learn how to use the Kaleidoscope Pro software to quickly and efficiently sort through recordings to meet project objectives. 

Several case studies of how our customers are doing this will be presented and discussed. Closer to the workshop date, we will send an email with instructions telling you how to install a demo license of Kaleidoscope Pro Analysis Software along with some sample recordings on your own computer for hands-on practice during the workshop. 

Limited space available.
